The 1105 Project is a collaboration of the Free Lunch Program, the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Johnson County, the Domestic Violence Intervention Program, and the Crisis Center of Johnson County to share space at 1105 Gilbert Court in Iowa City. Donations are needed to pay for renovations to the building, where the agencies expect to reach more clients through proximity and interrelated programming.
