"We're at the point now where we have 35 beds but forty fifty people a night coming to the mission so we need to expand to meet this growing need," said Daniel Hicks, Executive Director of the City Mission.
The plan is to expand in the current location. The new addition will add 18,000 square feet. Thus far the mission has raised $400,000 dollars.
