Open Arms of Minnesota

tile and grout

A few of us get to go into the new building pretty often, but it still is amazing how much progress they make each day! The quarry tile has been laid in the hot food prep area, and you can see it just starting to go down in the baking area. They are painting walls in the office area, and finishing up some of the work on the windows.

The more time that I spend in the space, the more it feels like the perfect spot for Open Arms’ new home. It doesn’t feel like a building, it feels like Open Arms. Warm, welcoming, and open. That was especially true when we celebrated the end of the Capital Campaign and World AIDS Day in the new space on 12/1/09. The energy from that night could have powered our kitchen for years!
