Become a Villager Today!
We are ready to purchase this property, but we need your help to get there financially. Our down payment is roughly $120,000. Your investment in The Manna Village is going to change lives in our community. Invest today and become a villager.
Many people we serve need multiple resources, especially when they’re trying to put their lives back together. But here’s the challenge: even when agencies are willing to work together, these people still have to find a way to get from one agency to the next. This means that the folks who have the fewest resources have to drive from agency to agency for help — if they’re lucky enough to have a car. If they don’t have a car, they might spend several hours walking or riding the bus to organizations where they may or may not get assistance.
Manna Café is just one agency, and as much as we’d like to do everything, we can’t. But what if we create a community of like-minded people and agencies who are committed to restoring the lives of those who need to get on their feet? What if we build a village — a place of hope where folks can be loved, counseled, and supported all at the same time?
Introducing the Manna Village
We’re excited to announce that we’re under contract to purchase a 44,000 sq-ft complex that will be the future Manna Village. The Village will consist of four buildings.
Building 1 (The Big House) – The Big House is a two-
story, 22,000 square foot building that dates back to the Civil War. It will house food distribution, offices and workspaces, a worship venue, a health clinic, and space for partnering agencies.
Building 2 (Refuge Community Center) – The Refuge will consist of a large multipurpose room, two areas to be used for training or as breakout rooms, a few smaller areas for computer labs, and a fully operational kitchen to support the activities in the Refuge Center.
Buildings 3 & 4 – Buildings 3 and 4 consist of two 7,500 square foot warehouses, each one sectioned off into three huge bays. We’ll divide two bays in Building 3 into smaller spaces for partner agencies such as clothing ministries, furniture ministries, and workforce-type organizations. The remaining bay will house Manna’s main commercial kitchen to support our meal programs. In Building 4, we’ll sort and store our food inventory.
