Northside Outreach Center Expansion

The activities at the Northside Outreach Center's current building have already outgrown the space!

In February of 2009, the NOC acquired the abandoned properties right next to our building on 3076 Meadowbridge Rd. Within a few short months, the unsightly buildings occupying the site were demolished and plans for a new facility were drawn up. This new building will enable us to expand our current ministries to accommodate more people. This means, more students in our after-school programs and more patrons to our thrift store. In addition, with the new 8,000+ facility, we will be able to add many exciting new ministries to help meet the needs in our community. Once completed, the expanded NOC will house an Early Childhood Development Center and will also be home to a Central Virginia Food Bank outpost.

The architect's drawings can be seen below:

Here is a street shot of our proposed expansion.  The left portion, with the red door, is the existing space that currently houses our NOC Thrift Store and is used to mentor, tutor, and help our Richmond Northside neighborhood.

The right portion of the building complex, with the brick fascia, is the proposed building expansion.  With this space we will be able to triple the number of students we can serve in our after school program, expand our Thrift Store, and add several new ministries to the community including adult literacy classes, job skills training, a private school, and a food pantry.

The portrayed parking lot is currently an open field.

In addition to expanding our ability to actively serve our community, we hope that the new building will help the "look and feel" of the neighborhood, and give us and our neighbors another source of pride in the Highland Park community.
