A new building for Abraham's Tent is set to open in late September to early October. The entire project has been funded by private donations.

"It just says something about our community," said Pearl Cole, Director of Abraham's Tent. "Our community is just awesome."

Cole said she's most excited about having air conditioning, which has been an issue at their current location.

"We're really looking forward to it especially when the heat is like 100 degrees in our kitchen right now."

There has always been a push for a better facility, but it was a major donation that finally got the momentum started.

"We had a donor step up and bought the land," said Gale Zembower, architect of the new building. "That was key, we had the land and a design in place."

Organizers are still looking for donations.
