St. Joseph’s Center renovated with Renovabis funds

DSC_0706Slowly but surely St. Joseph’s Social Center is getting into shape. The Renovabis Foundation from Germany has granted us funds for finishing the exterior renovation of the building, which hosts our main offices at present. From among 3 possible companies we have selected one – SC Armared SRL – which started the renovation on the 15th of September 2018. The work is expected to be finished within 2 months.

We started renovating the building bit by bit, back in 2010. Since then we have managed to reconstruct the roofing, to change the old windows, and to renovate the external façade on the front side of the building (towards the street). On the interior we have renovated only a part of the groundfloor level rooms and some parts of the cellar. We are already using the renovated rooms as our main offices but the 1st floor and 2nd floor levels are still not usable.

This project will enable us to complete the external renovation of the entire building. Our plan for the future is to put in function a daycare center for the elderly here. It would be a first in Oradea. The building will also host our new educational program, which is in development right now.
