All Gender Accessible Restroom Project Funding Completed

In 2017, as a part of our efforts to make our sanctuary more accessible and inclusive, Neighborhood applied for and received a Spirit Level Grant (http://www.spiritlevel.org) of up to $49,000 to convert the “bride’s room” in the Narthex into all gender accessible family restrooms. This fall, our first ever #GivingTuesday raised more than $5,000 to fund the project and this spring a generous donor passionate about the project stepped up to fulfill the remainder of the grant. We are so proud to say that the $49,000 raised by the congregation has now been matched by the Spirit Level Grant and the project is moving forward! We have met with architect Steve Dahl to design the restrooms and are so thrilled with the plans that are being developed to create welcoming restrooms that serve the diverse needs of our community. We expect to be moving forward with receiving construction bids in May and breaking ground this summer.

We hope to celebrate this achievement soon with a Spirit Level representative! The celebrations for May 19th have been temporarily postponed as a representative will not be able to join us that day. Stay tuned!
