Lucy’s Hearth

NCA designed new headquarters for Lucy’s Hearth, a non-profit organization that provides shelter and critical human services to homeless women and their children in Newport County. The project entails completely refurbishing the interior and grounds at the former Child & Family Service’s headquarters to allow for increase in capacity to serve more homeless women & children.
