Bethlehem Inn is well on its way to building some new digs.
By raising $4,668,700 through its Bethlehem Inn Transforming Lives Together Capital Campaign, the nonprofit emergency shelter exceeded its $4.5 million goal, officials recently announced.
The cash injection will finance the construction of the family residential facility and service hub, which will comprise 18,600 square feet. Building will begin in March or April, according to a press release.
Presently occupying a former motel, The Bethlehem Inn will double the services it provides to homeless men, women and children.
Gwenn Wysling, the executive director, announced that Heather Tennant Salvesen, from Bend, has been named chair of the Bethlehem Inn Transforming Lives Together Capital Campaign.
