Bethlehem Inn – Homeless Shelter
Bethlehem Inn’s staff work tirelessly, day-in and day-out, helping Central Oregonians who are homeless. Beyond giving them a safe, sheltered place to sleep, the Bethlehem Inn provides meals as well as assistance to help end homelessness. For years, the shelter operated out of an old hotel that had inadequate space for staff members and those they served. Thanks to the generosity of many donors during an ongoing capital campaign, Bethlehem Inn is now able to completely rebuild their facilities to better meet the non-profit’s needs, and we at Ascent Architecture & Interiors are proud to help them with this rewarding project—from initial design concepts all the way through construction administration. The rebuild, split into two phases, will result in more administrative space, a commercial kitchen, dining space, sleeping units for families and individuals, and space for Bethlehem Inn’s support programs. In the end, more people struggling with homelessness will have access to shelter and assistance.
