Southern Illinois families will have more room to grow in a matter of weeks, thanks to on-going renovations at Hope Unlimited Family Care Center’s Metropolis location.
Crews from Joshua Humphrey Construction, LLC of West Paducah are adding 563 square feet to the existing community store, Hope’s Closet, located at 305 Lincoln Street. The new floor plan consists of wider aisles, a furniture department, and a secure donation drop-off area. Generous community members donate clothes, housewares, and furniture to the store to be sold for less. Hope Unlimited Family Care Center clients are also able to shop with Hope Dollars they earn by participating in the free and confidential programs offered. All store proceeds go back into the non-profit ministry, allowing the center to reach more families.
The renovation also creates a new space for client’s material needs, like diapers and hygiene items, as well as a new office, conference room, and executive storage.
