A Mission in Need
When the Gospel Rescue Mission asked Ausland Group to take over its stalled, multi-million dollar capital improvement project, it was riddled with complex construction constraints and problematic design elements. Ausland addressed all challenges in the first phase and creatively modified the design and materials to reduce the budget by 25 percent.
A Campaign in Perseverance
Phase two presented even larger challenges: a depressed economy affected fundraising goals and threatened permit expirations; structural design deficiencies were revealed; and insufficient heating and ventilation designs were discovered.
Aaron and Kelsy Ausland become personally involved in the Mission’s capital campaign effort, making presentations and successfully lobbying for permit extensions. To accommodate funding availability, they created phasing opportunities for the re-design and construction.
Eleven years of prayer later, the Gospel Rescue Mission‘s multi-building campus dream is a reality.
