We are thrilled to announce our BUILDING TO SERVE: Community Begins Here, $5 million capital campaign.
Since 1985 Face to Face has worked to restore dignity and hope to those suffering in the Germantown and surrounding communities. Beginning with a hot, delicious meal we holistically address our guests’ needs through our Health, Legal and Social Services centers. We also work to give the children of our community the educational and social support they need to escape the poverty that engulfs them.
Our wonderful building allows us to offer all of our programs under one roof. Rather that send a client across town to see a lawyer or a nurse, we simply direct them across the hallway to receive the assistance they need. The building however, is 132 years old and in serious need of renovation. The goal of our campaign is to increase our capacity to serve. In order to accomplish that we will modernize and expand the kitchen and dining room, improve the common areas and renovate 7,000 square feet of space on the lower level, which will be designated exclusively for our children’s programs.
We are delighted to share that to date we have raised $3.6 million toward our $5 million goal. We are asking you, and all of our supporters, to please consider a gift to help us reach our goal. By supporting us you will join in the transformative mission of Face to Face. To learn more about how the renovations will increase our ability to serve our community please visit www.facetofacegermantown.org and click on the Capital Campaign button. Please contact either Mary Kay Meeks-Hank, Executive Director or Susan O’Hagan Marley, Director of Development with any questions you may have about the campaign.
Beginning on May 1, 2017 we will temporarily move our Dining Room, Health, Legal and Social Services Centers to available space in the First United Church of Germantown (FUMCOG) which is just two blocks away at 6001 Germantown Avenue. The FUMCOG community is happy to have us and we are grateful for their willingness to offer us temporary space.
As always, we will need our dynamic volunteers to staff our programs. Detailed information about the temporary site will follow in the next few weeks. It is an exciting time to be part of the Face to Face community!
