Charlotte Rescue Mission - Community Matters Cafe

Project Summary

Timmons Group provided rezoning, civil engineering, landscape architecture, and construction administration services for the Charlotte Rescue Mission’s Community Matters Café in Charlotte, North Carolina. The nonprofit organization, which has been providing assistance to the homeless and those battling addiction for over 80 years, expanded their program to provide an opportunity for their graduates. An existing 100-year old building was renovated into the café which serves breakfast and lunch and provides indoor and outdoor covered seating. Students in the Community Matters Café Life Skills Program will be employed at the café where they will learn essential life skills needed to thrive in the community.
