In response to agency growth and structural limitations, East Side Neighborhood Services launched a capital campaign in 2000 to build a new facility. The $8.16 million capital campaign involved constructing a new 53,000-square foot facility to house a variety of connected services all under one roof.
On the weekend of April 20, 2001 staff and worker crews moved everything out of our previous home of 85 years at 1929 Second Street NE and moved it all one block south to our new home at 1700 Second Street NE. On Monday, April 23, 2001 we opened our doors for service at our beautiful new facility.
