Alpha-Omega Miracle Home Breaking Ground on New Campus
Groundbreaking ceremony for the highly anticipated new Alpha-Omega Miracle Home campus will serve young mothers, children and senior women facing homelessness
St. Augustine, Fla., February 28, 2023— Alpha-Omega Miracle Home’s (AOMH) mission of housing single mothers, their children and senior women facing homelessness broke ground on their new campus today joined by key governmental advocates of the project, Senator Travis Hutson, State Representative Cyndi Stevenson; and local advocates Chris Shee, Founder and CEO, MasterCraft Builder Group; Robert A. Hardwick, St. John’s County Sheriff; and Bobby Crum, President, Board of Directors for AOMH and AOMH CEO, Lisa Franklin.
“I’m proud to support the good work being done by the Alpha-Omega Miracle Home. Their commitment to offering single mothers and their children a path forward by providing affordable shelter, support services, and hope for a better future is exactly how we move this vulnerable population in the right direction,” stated Senator Hutson. “This new campus will provide a much-needed resource in our community.”
AOMH regularly has a waiting list of 80+ women in need of housing assistance. This new campus will triple AOMH’s safe bed night capacity, double the number of affordable housing units, and provide a community center to serve residents and the larger community. When completed the new campus will include 20 two-bedroom apartments, 12 efficiency apartments, and 6 dormitory style rooms, housing up to 100 residents while offering comprehensive support services through AOMH's programs.
“An undertaking like this one is dependent on donors and supporters of AOMH. With help from the $3.5 million dollar allocation from the Freedom First budget which was supported by our distinguished guests – Senator Hutson and Representative Stevenson; AOMH has secured an additional $1.5 million in grants and fundraising allowing us to break ground today,” said CEO Lisa Franklin. “We thank all our donors and supporters for their continued commitment to our mission.”
An additional $10 million is still needed to complete the project. Those interested in supporting the completion of AOMH’s new campus and their mission can give directly via the website at https://www.aomh.org/give-to-aomh/.
