This building serves Neighborhood House, a non-profit organization established to help diverse communities with limited resources attain their goals for self-sufficiency, financial independence and community building. The upper floor houses family support services, while the lower floor features a computer learning lab, an early education program for 40 children, and community meeting rooms of various sizes.
The building expresses the inclusive, empowering mission of Neighborhood House, and honors the diversity of the community through its variety of forms and materials. Vast expanses of glass throughout the building provide natural light on even the darkest winter days.
