Matthew 25 Celebrates New Location


By Kayleigh Milas

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Matthew 25, a non-profit in Cedar Rapids, celebrated its new home with an open house Monday.

Matthew 25 moved into the Kingston Village neighborhood across the river from the main downtown area. Earlier this year, the non-profit bought the former ACME graphics building in the 200 block of 3rd Ave. SW.

At the open house, the group unveiled some of its preliminary renovation plans for the building.

Once it obtains building permits, it will first focus on building a gathering space for teens as part of its youth program. There are also plans for a tool library and warehouse space.

Matthew 25 was impacted by the 2008 floods. The new location is its first permanent space since the flood.
