Heartland Family Services realized the need to provide specialized care for women with children and pregnant women; providing them with a safe place to live while seeking treatment for substance abuse, and spaces for the complementary programming that helps get these families back on their feet. Tasked with being good stewards of the client’s resources, and met with the challenge of bringing new life to a derelict apartment building, the design team turned to modernist principles, using the contrast of warm colors and textures to complement the cool palate of the existing concrete. The result is a space with a residential feel that is timeless and durable, and a hopeful place of healing for the families who live there.
The programs at Heartland Family Works are unique. They are designed primarily to support low income women – affording them time and space to heal while keeping their children with them. This approach results in improved health outcomes, but provided unique design challenges related to space planning for women, children, and staff. The facilities include 21 two-bedroom residential units, and three three-bedroom units. Also included in the building are educational spaces, therapy spaces, common rooms, fitness center, preschool, staff and administrative space, and more.
