The Bishop Sullivan Center is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of services to help low-income people throughout the metro.
Bishop Sullivan Center’s Mission
“Inspired by Christian faith, Bishop Sullivan Center shows God’s love to people in financial hardship by providing food, help in finding jobs and other aid. Beyond material assistance, Bishop Sullivan Center strives to build relationships between those who live in poverty and those who do not, promoting mutual understanding and affirming the dignity of all.”
Straub Construction has had a longstanding relationship with The Bishop Sullivan Center and has participated in many of their services. One of these services is their Community Kitchen which provides hot meals to an average of 255 people each night. Right now, the Community Kitchen is only able to reheat food and the dining area is a very small so it is elbow-to-elbow during every meal. In an effort to expand the outreach of the Community Kitchen, provide a more comfortable eating experience, and provide more nutritious meals, Straub Construction has been tasked with the honor of renovating their current space into what will be known as One City Café.
Along with expanding the space and providing a more open concept and comfortable dining experience, the new One City Café will have new cooking equipment that will allow the Bishop Sullivan Center to prepare fresh and nutritious meals. Additionally, part of The Bishop Sullivan Center’s mission is to “build relationships between those who live in poverty and those who do not.” Therefore, there will be a strong effort to include the community in both preparing meals and dining at One City Café.
Straub Construction is honored to have the opportunity to renovate the current Community Kitchen into the new One City Café for the Bishop Sullivan Center. The Bishop Sullivan Center has an incredibly positive impact on the less fortunate in our community and we’re thrilled to continue our relationship with this great organization. We will be starting our renovations on the One City Café in the beginning of September and plan to open the doors to the Café by Christmas.
