Through the generosity of several friends, Dodwell House is no longer a dream. However, developing a place of possibility and hope is no small undertaking.
We are creating and equipping a space fit for the program needs of Anna’s Place NOLA. Beyond the physical space, we are increasing our capacity to deliver our promise to the community. And we are ensuring we can sustain our growth.
We began the planning process two years ago. With the support of local architects experienced in historic preservation, the final plans are drawn and construction is scheduled to begin at the end of this year with the goal of moving in by the end of 2021.
The total cost of the Dodwell House capital expansion program is projected to be $4.2 million. This includes the cost of creating, equipping and operating a space fit for our program needs, while also sustaining Dodwell House and Anna’s Place programs for the first five years.
