The site which from a distance may be confused for a new hotel or maybe even a new apartment complex is in fact of the biggest projects in Coeur d' Alene right now,And surely the city's largest non-profit expansion.

The all new building located on Haycraft Ave. is being built as a branch of the homeless and needy non profit organization , Union Gospel Mission , who up until now has primarily focused on the needs of the less fortunate in the Spokane area is opening a new mission on this CdA site for women and children. The Coeur d' Alene Union Gospel Mission is set to open Aug 1st and will be under the direction of Joann Zajicek.

The new Coeur d' Alene Union Gospel Mission branch will feature a convenient location which is near a CityLink bus line as well as many programs to help get Coeur d' Alene's homeless women and children back on their feet. Inside the new building one will find 35 shelter beds, 30 crisis center beds as well as an on site doctor, dental and vision clinics on site, kitchen space , several classrooms, computer labs, admin. offices and a chapel. The floor plan also shows a "recovery store" which could be a Coeur d' Alene location of the popular Union Gospel Mission Thrift Store .

The new Coeur d' Alene Union Gospel Mission is fulfilling a great need in the community and is also always taking donations and new volunteers to staff their centers. For more info visit the mission's website at-
