highland park Community Family Center

The Community Family Center (CFC) is an umbrella organization that seeks to provide an improved facility co-housing five long-standing social services agenices that support families with young children and seniors.  The design maximizes sharing resources and supporting synergies between the agencies, while still giving each organization its individual identity.  Working closely with City, School District and Park District representatives, and many other involved project stakeholders, Maria Segal as Senior Project Designer for Holabird&Root and as Principal at Blender Architecture investigated several different potential locations and represented the CFC's interests as they negotiate and build concensus for how to get this important project built.
