The construction team is making significant progress on our new home each day, and we are so excited to watch our dream become a reality in front of our eyes!

Maggie’s New House – May Highlights

  • HVAC ductwork has begun 
  • Electric rough install has begun 
  • Finalizing appliances for the commercial-grade kitchen

“On Tuesday of this week, Ainsley, Teresa, and I got the chance to walk through the new house on Gaston. We were all so thrilled to see how quickly the construction is progressing and are able to now really envision what it will look like when completed!”
– Chloe Cramer, Director of Programs

May Progress

Earlier this week, we met with BufordHawthorne, KDC, and Omniplan to walk the property to check the placement of all canned lights, plugs, and switches. It is so lovely to partner with a team that is helping to ensure that every little detail of this home meets our programming needs – down to the door style and swing design. 

We are currently finalizing the appliance order for our commercial-grade kitchen. Thanks to a partnership with Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove, we will able to purchase high-quality appliances at cost. These include a 48″ dual fuel range with six burners and a griddle, which will allow our clients to cook family-style meals with much more ease.

Not only will the new Community Space hold double our current capacity, but it will also be full of light with all the beautiful windows and glass-paneled doors. We will be able to seat 100 individuals for Birthday Nights, daily classes and meetings, workshops, and more in a space that is much brighter than our current meeting room.

If you are interested in seeing the new space in person, please contact Kate Richter to schedule a time to tour the property with a staff member at
