Neighborhood House

For nearly 125 years, Neighborhood House has provided high-quality adult and child day care services for low-income families. It is not surprising that it has grown into a space that many count on. With the increase in local demand, Neighborhood house is currently expanding its facility to serve the community better. The 57,000 sf facility houses three wings, a two-story children’s center, a single-story administration, and an adult center.
The Children’s Center has classrooms for children ages two to twelve. Programmed spaces include a demonstration kitchen, dance room, library, and gymnasium. FFKR’s landscape architecture studio designed playgrounds for three age groups. The toddler playground is accessed through their classroom. Planned special for this age group, it is separate from the other playgrounds. The child and pre-teen playgrounds are accessed via the main corridors and planned for each age group.
The center wing houses shared and administrative spaces. A large commercial kitchen allows staff to make from-scratch meals for both children and adult clients.
The Adult Center serves the adult daycare program. Large activity rooms, a demonstration kitchen, and a unique outdoor space with a greenhouse support activity and development programs.
