HAVEN FROM HUNGER
Collaborating with MRG Construction Management, Red Barn helped to enhance Citizens Inn’s Haven from Hunger’s facilities. Red Barn’s architectural services spanned two phases and included installing a new commercial-grade kitchen, a new dining hall, and a food pantry. These upgraded spaces significantly support the efforts of the Community Meals Program, which offers no-cost dinners four days a week and serves an impressive number of over 16,000 meals annually. The expansion project also encompassed the addition of necessary office space and the creation of the Resource Center, an emerging area that provides community referral resources and fosters community-building through conversation.
Currently, Red Barn is collaborating with Citizens Inn on “Citizens Inn Between,” a redevelopment project that will provide emergency, temporary housing for individuals and families in need.
