The Baright building will now house the Miracles Residential Addiction Treatment & Recovery Program. The $30 million renovation was funded by Heritage Services and the city, among others.

A $30 million renovation project to turn a building on the Siena Francis House campus into an addiction treatment center has been completed.

Used for decades as the men’s shelter, the renovated Baright building near 17th and Nicholas Streets will now primarily house the Miracles Residential Addiction Treatment & Recovery Program, shelter officials said Thursday.

Funding for the project came from Omaha’s philanthropic community, led by Heritage Services, and from the City of Omaha, which provided funds for site remediation and street improvements, said Linda Twomey, executive director of Siena Francis.

The Miracles program will provide treatment through a 12-step model, administered by state-licensed counselors and therapists. It’s free to adults who are homeless or are at risk for homelessness because of substance abuse disorders.

The new facility has 80 beds available, and participants stay for an average of nine months, with about 300 people receiving services each year.

The renovation project began after a new shelter to house up to 450 men and women opened on the campus last December.
