CenterPointe Acquires Campus for Hope, Plans $7M Renovation and Expansion
CenterPointe (https://www.centerpointe.org/) has acquired Campus for Hope and is undertaking a $7 million renovation and expansion of the facility to add additional capacity for clients in need of crisis response, treatment, rehabilitation, housing, and peer-support services to address mental health and addiction challenges. Campus for Hope is an Omaha facility with co-occurring residential and short-term residential treatment programs for the greater Omaha metro area.
Formerly operated by Catholic Charities, Campus for Hope contracted with CenterPointe to lease some space in the facility for residential care for more than three years. Catholic Charities recently decided not to operate the facility due to expenses and difficulties managing government regulations, so CenterPointe secured low-income-housing tax credits from the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority, plus other funding, to acquire and expand the entire facility. CenterPointe did not seek any philanthropic financial support to cover the cost, as financing solutions proved adequate to fund the entire project.
The estimated $7 million in renovations will include a new roof, windows, flooring, paint, heating and air-conditioning systems, and a new kitchen and dining area. Another area of the building that CenterPointe didn’t formerly lease will be converted into a new 20-bed residential treatment facility that services individuals with substance use and co-occurring health issues.
CenterPointe offers a broad continuum of care, with more than 35 programs in Omaha and Lincoln, including treatment, rehabilitation, housing, and crisis services for people experiencing mental-health and substance-use disorders.
