In November of 2012, four churches approached New Beginnings about the need for an emergency overflow shelter.  They proposed that they would raise the money and the volunteers to rehab and operate the shelter for one year.  They called it advent conspiracy.  A conspiracy to take back Christmas from consumerism and promote its true meaning.  And so began the Noel Project.

The Noel Project Emergency Overflow Lodging has three family rooms, a dormitory for single men, a dormitory for single women, showers, lockers, and a kitchen and dining room that provides dinner and breakfast served on site and prepared in our central kitchen at Meadowlark Commons.  The Lodge opens at 6:00 PM and closes at 7:00 AM.  By providing lockers, people are able to leave their belongings and not have to carry them with them.  During the day, New Beginnings Housing Specialist will meet with the guests for referrals for community resources and housing.  At night there is a combination of staff and volunteers.
