This project consists of an 80,000 s.f. renovation of an abandoned factory and warehouse space in Cincinnati, Ohio. The new facility serves as the home for the David & Rebecca Barron Center for Men, a homeless shelter part of Shelterhouse organization (formerly the Drop Inn Center). This larger urban location has allowed the shelter to expand their offerings to the homeless population, including additional case manager offices, a full clinic, dedicated classroom space, and an expanded day center and cafeteria. Renovations also include three shelters, each with their own bathrooms and lounge areas, a new secure entry, laundry facilities, exterior courtyard, and staff offices. The facility also houses the Cincinnati Winter Shelter, a temporary shelter for use in cold weather.
