COMMUNITY CRISIS CENTER OPEN HOUSE
Sunday, October 29 2017, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Your Invited to our Open House!
We have made some BIG improvementsat the Crisis Center and you are invited to come see them. The Open House includes the official unveiling of our mural painted in our entrance that celebrates our 40th anniversary of providing respite to those in need here in Northern Kane County. Elgin artist, Tracey Padron, was commissioned by the Crisis Center to paint a mural depicting both past and present day events at the Crisis Center; the project was funded by a private donor. As you enter the facility you will see folks at the end of their rope who are climbing the stairs where they are greeted by a group of Founding Mothers. Above the elevator doors are prominent funders and our longtime executive director surrounded by children who have received services at the Crisis Center. The first floor center hallway is filled with playful characters who climb and tumble across the walls, providing conversation for children and parents waiting for services. Other improvements in the agency were provided by a recent grant from Impact 100 Chicago Suburban Chapter. Improvements include a new telephone system and commercial refrigerator for the shelter. This grant also funded the renovation of one of the shelter’s 7 bedrooms to include a private bathroom that will allow the Crisis Center to more adequately care for families with teen boys. And finally, the 2nd floor shelter bedrooms, bathrooms and hallways will receive a fresh coat of paint. Please come and take a tour, meet our staff and celebrate our service to the community.
We’ll have the lights on for you!
