DEACONESS CENTER FOR CHILD WELL-BEING

The Deaconess Foundation pursues child well-being through public policy and racial equity. The new 21,000sf Deaconess Center for Child Well-Being houses office space for Deaconess Foundation and long-term partners, Vision for Children at Risk and Unleashing Potential. Meeting spaces are available to child advocates, civic leaders and community organizers.  The facility also features classrooms, outdoor spaces and a chapel.

The design-build team received a Design-Build Institute of America – Mid-America Region 2018 Honor Award for the project. As construction manager, KWAME largely contributed to the project’s 35% MBE participation, including 15% WBE participation.
