It was also an incredibly significant year in terms of physical and programmatic growth.A CAMPUS OF HOPE The opening of a new Welcome Center marked the completion of SRM’s six-year, $18-million-dollar Community of Hope capital campaign to create a homeless resource campus.The creation of a single point of entry makes for a safer and more secure campus — one conducive to healing and recovery. It also lets us better know our guests and protect them from drugs, alcohol, weapons and communicable diseases like COVID-19.“This place of healing and transformation fulﬁlls a God-given dream to create an extensive homeless resource campus in our city,” said President & CEO Jack Briggs. IT’S WORKING This campus is ﬁlled with life, love and the pursuit of dreams. People are healing, letting go and ﬁnding new direction in life. They are getting healthy, ﬁnding jobs and moving into homes of their own. They are ﬁnding their true purpose in life.
