PROJECT SUMMARY

The Oak City Multi-Services Center is the culmination of several years of collaborative efforts of the City of Raleigh, Wake County, the Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness, and Catholic Charities. The Center serves as a place where people experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness can be connected to an array of services that will help them transition to permanent housing and access economic, medical, mental health and employment assistance. The Center includes a large multipurpose area for community meetings, training and weekend meal distribution. The core building space meets basic needs, including access to telephones, computers, restrooms, bathing facilities and laundry. The Oak City Multi-Services Center also provides meal distribution each weekend to an estimated 500 people per day.

The Oak City Multi-Services Center project included site improvements and renovations to an existing warehouse building that was constructed in the 1950s. The newly renovated building has approximately 20,291 SF of programmed area and 9,297 SF of future and mechanical space.
