The current Father Bill’s building is scheduled to be torn down to make way for a new police department. The nonprofit is planning to move across the street into two new buildings.

One will consist of a day center with an emergency shelter and a health care clinic, while the other will hold 30 apartments for permanent housing.

The total cost is expected to be about $24 million.
