Evansville Rescue Mission cuts ribbon on Centennial Center


The Evansville Rescue Mission cut the ribbon on its new Centennial Center on Thursday.

Chamber of Commerce staff and ambassadors were on hand to help with the honors.

Construction on the new center began in February of 2018.

The 11,000-square-foot addition to the mission’s facility includes a great room that will serve as a chapel, a multi-purpose room, and as a meeting space for other area non-profits.

It will also serve as the mission’s day shelter and will have a coffee shop in addition to a new offering.

The building will be dedicated on Sunday at 2 p.m. on Walnut St. in downtown Evansville.

The mission serves homeless men and operates a detention center for troubled youth.
