Volunteer Days at the New Dawn Outreach Center

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who helped with the cleanup and painting of our new building at 350 East Adams Street in downtown Jacksonville, and a special thank you to the Ditech Financial office in Jacksonville that shared 14 of their finest employees with us to volunteer over the three volunteer work days.

A Message from our Executive Director Dawn Elmore
New Dawn Café

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the closure of New Dawn Cafe.

With the COVID situation, many of the downtown businesses still have folks working from home, and there is just not enough business for us to sustain.

Thank you to all of our supporters and patrons.  We appreciate you and your business.

Please continue to follow our outreach activities at the New Dawn Outreach Center.
