RICHARDSON – The Network of Community Ministries launched a new fundraising campaign today to help remodel its new 45,000 square-foot facility located in Richardson’s IQ®.

The building purchased by the Network back in November is more than triple the space of the organization’s current offices.

The pandemic and the aftermath of the October 2019 tornadoes highlighted the need for more space as both events caused requests for Network’s services to increase dramatically.

“When people walk into our new home, I want them to understand that this is a place where everyone is welcome and that you are loved here, cared for, and we are here to take care of you and help you to figure out how we are going to meet those needs,” said Cindy Shafer, CEO, The Network of Community Ministries.
