The Children’s Bureau serves at-risk families throughout Indiana, fulfilling a wide variety of needs, from foster care licensing, food and clothing drives, to emergency child care. With these needs in mind, they set out to build the Gene Glick Family Support Center and executive offices. The challenge was to create a space for an extremely complicated program that incorporates nonsecure and secure spaces for the utmost safety of the children. The building is carefully designed to segment populations, assuring that user groups mix intentionally, never accidentally. Schmidt Associates delivered a unique facility that is also LEED Gold certified.
Like what we did? Let’s Talk!
“To us, seeking LEED certification was a no brainer. Philosophically, we view all children as precious resources – just like our broader environment in which we live and work. And when maltreatment has scarred or emotionally harmed a child, we work through our services to reclaim their childhood. Hence, through this new facility, we are exhibiting responsibility on a variety of levels for the positive advancement in the well-being of the community we serve.”
