HACSM is a Christian ministry of encouragement and assistance to those in need. It began as an outreach project of the mission committee of a local church, to provide a food pantry to Highland area residents in need. As needs increased, they moved to a rented 2,000-square-foot facility in June 1999.

The demand for their services continued to grow, and on September 2, 2008, with the help of a grant from Madison County Community Development, and assistance from the City of Highland, local businesses, civic groups and generous individuals, the HACSM was able to move to a new building located at 900 Chestnut Street in Highland. The new building includes more office space, a larger waiting room, more warehousing capacity, and has a 10' by 10' walk-in freezer.

The relocation and expansion project addressed the need for a location with easier accessibility and more convenient parking. The growth of services being offered required more private and open office space, updated restrooms, a services display area for literature, and display and storage space for donated household items and clothing, more food warehousing space, shelving for dry goods, and more food refrigeration and freezing capacity for perishable goods.

The building is Conventional Construction, 60' by 75' with a 10-foot eave height, slab-on-grade, 24-gauge steel siding with composition shingles. The windows are double hung vinyl with 1-inch insulated glass. There are no air locks at the bay door or main doors.

The concrete foundations are insulated with 2-inch rigid polystyrene with ˝-inch thermal break on the stem wall to slab. Exterior walls are constructed with 2" by 6" conventional wood framing, covered on the exterior with plywood and vapor barrier, finished with the 24 gauge steel siding. Interior wall insulation is spray applied cellulose (R-23). The office ceilings are conventional drop ceiling, under a total building ceiling of ˝-inch OSB sheeting. The attic space is spray cellulose 16-inch deep (R-38).

Two wall mounted 200-amp circuit breaker panel boxes supply power to the building. High-energy efficiency fluorescent lighting with T-8 lamps runs throughout the building.

Besides incidental electrical demand in the offices, air conditioning, and an electric water heater, there are 4 large refrigerators, 2 large chest deep freezers, one stand up sliding glass door produce cooler, and a 10' by 10' walk-in freezer pulling a fairly constant electrical demand. Total electric cost, including tax the first 12 months was $3,343.78, or $74.31 cents per square foot per year.

Korte & Luitjohan Contractors, Inc. was picked as the general contractor because of their lowest bid. Because K&L,s bid was still over HASCM,s budget, K&L worked extensively on Valued Engineering with the architect, the City and the Board on design changes to decrease the cost, and to build the project within the owner,s limited budget while still meeting energy efficient sustainability goals.
