The Life Center receives people who have life-controlling problems associated with housing issues (homeless, in plain Dutch).
The center has 17 rooms including staff and guest rooms. Teen Challenge was able to buy the building in March 2020!
As the owner of the building, Teen Challenge is now also responsible for all safety measures in the building. There are strict requirements for residential buildings. Fire safety has already been brought up to code.
Unfortunately, it turned out that the water installation does not meet the legionella prevention requirements (pfff). Fortunately, no legionella has ever been diagnosed (this is checked regularly).
It has been decided to make the heating installation more sustainable, instead of rerouting pipes. This will also result in energy savings. Sponsoring for this project has already been found.
An amount of approximately 7,000 euro is still needed for the replacement of pipes and tubes. These are costs that are outside the normal daily expenses to run the center. So, we want to help bring (part of) the needed amount together.
