Open Door Mission Men's Center

CLIENT: Open Door Mission
ARCHITECT: Alley Poyner Macchietto

Lund-Ross built the new Garland Thompson Men’s Center during the third and final phase of construction for the Open Door Mission campus in Omaha. Lund-Ross built the Lydia House for Women & Families and the Permanent Supportive Housing facility during the first two phases of construction.

Open Door Mission provides basic needs for over 400 men, women, and children every day. The new Garland Thompson Men’s Center facility can provide emergency shelter for up to 180 single men every night and houses 48 beds in the resident rehabilitation program and 32 beds in the Veteran Housing First Program.

Lund-Ross built a 60,000-square-foot wood-framed building for the men’s center. The project scope included the construction of a learning center with tutoring and computer labs, a kitchen and dining room, a fitness room, a medical clinic, a chapel, expanded bathroom and laundry facilities, and administrative space for Open Door Mission staff.

The Open Door Mission Garland Thompson Men’s Center was completed on time by Lund-Ross in summer 2012.
