Susan King of Harley Ellis Devereaux designed the renovation of this four-story, 15,000 square foot facility based on input from youth in our programs and staff. The building cost $3.5 million including land, HVAC, equipment, four star energy appliances, computers, furniture, and opened in August, 2006. Khatib & Associates handled the mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering. Staalsen Construction Company oversaw the renovation.
The first floor houses a lobby, meeting room, and offices. Our 120-day Interim Housing Program operates on the second & third floors, and our Transitional Living Program operates on the fourth floor. The building has a courtyard where in summer we hold BBQs for the residents, and it serves as a safe place to hang outside.
The West Town neighborhood offers 24-hour public transporation, lots of social service agencies, public high schools. A grocery store and laundromat are nearby, providing easy access to residents in our Transitional Living Program.
