Get Involved in Giving Tuesday!
CAPS is officially in the new Joy Rose Center!
After breaking ground in September 2016, the new Joy Rose Center is complete and has already started services. Volunteers from Ancon Construction, DJ Construction, Lippert Components, Mapletronics and Welch Packaging moved each program department into the new building on August 1st and 2nd. The new CAPS Joy Rose Center is 27,000 sq. ft and has 2 floors. The new building also has multi-purpose meeting spaces to enhance training and education with each program at CAPS; creating opportunities to reach more families. CAPS Joy Rose Center also has a different design and color scheme for each program at CAPS that creates an energetic, comfortable family environment.
Staff members are quickly adjusting to the new building and have started services with families in the new facility. CAPS currently serves about 3,500 people in Elkhart, 1,500 in Goshen, 200 in the Wakarusa/Nappanee, 150 in Middlebury and 60 in Millersburg/New Paris per year. The new building will enable CAPS to increase services and reach 800 more families in Elkhart County. CAPS looks forward to continuing its mission of ensuring that every child lives a life free from abuse and neglect. The new building is located adjacent to the old CAPS Joy Rose Center at 1000 W. Hively Ave., Elkhart, IN and the demolition of the old building will begin in two weeks. CAPS would like to thank all of our volunteers throughout Elkhart County that assisted with our move. We are thankful and honored to serve Elkhart County.
