2020 Year in Review
2020 was an unprecedented year with ups and downs! Regardless of the obstacles we faced as a community, 2020 showed us that our little yellow house is more than just a building. This year showed us that Nueces is a home for individuals from many places across the world, that regardless of whether we're together physically or not, the unity of Nueces still resonates with all of us. Nueces Leadership thanks our committed community for an amazing year filled with many new initiatives and growth. Join us in looking back at some of 2020's best moments! 

For a more in depth look at what we’ve done, check out:

Imam Search Weekends
 Alhamdulillah, we conducted many interviews virtually and held 3 comprehensive Interview Weekends for our top candidates. Your feedback has helped us to narrow the list down to 2 finalists. In early 2021, we will have additional programs for the community to get to know these candidates better and for them to get to know us. Our goal is to select an Imam by early 2021, insha'Allah!

Nueces Reconstruction Project

Significant strides were made regarding the Nueces Reconstruction Project, from developing the "Basis of Design" for the Project to building a professional design and engineering team to shepherd the project towards fruition. Below are a few milestones that were achieved, which ultimately placed us in a great position to kick off design development and construction documentation for the Project in 2021, insha'Allah! 

  • Architects drove collaborations with Nueces Mosque to complete the Basis of Design; outlining the minimum design requirements and criteria for the Project 
  • Detailed ProForma completed and validated; defining the cost structure of the Project, and highlighting critical financial opportunities/risks that define the direction and complexity of the project 

  • A top tier professional Design & Engineering team assembled; Architecture, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Landscape

  • We are now working on establishing a strong finance and capital development team to lead the major capital campaign required to raise funds for the project

  • Ending 2020 with $701,002 in our reconstruction fund
