Oklahoma City’s Core to Shore redevelopment plan presented the Salvation Army a unique opportunity to relocate and replace its now outgrown and outdated buildings.
A news conference was held Wednesday morning to announce the walls are being raised on the new Salvation Army Center of Hope at NW 10 and Pennsylvania Avenue.
The new center will include 50,000 square feet that will serve as a hub for a comprehensive network of family and homeless services, including shelter, emergency food, clothing, utility assistance, social service case management, disaster relief, rehabilitation referrals, and classes in parenting and life skills.
The Salvation Army is holding a fundraising campaign to raise funds to complete the center. The total cost of the project is $14.1 million. Currently the organization has raised about $11.5 million.
