INDIANAPOLIS - Little Red Door Cancer Agency in Indianapolis has launched a $2.1 million project that it says will transform its building into a vibrant community center for people fighting cancer. The agency says the New Hope Project will expand programming and make the building more accessible.

The organization says highlights of the multi-million dollar effort include a more accessible entrance for those with physical limitations, a dedicated fitness and yoga studio and significant space for program-specific cooking classes and community gatherings.

Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-October, with hopes for the renovated building to open in summer 2018. During the renovation, Little Red Door will offer services in a nearby temporary office space on Meridian Street.
