Catholic Diocese of Peoria – New Family Resources Center

The project consisted of a design-build project for the Catholic Diocese of Peoria’s new 8,000-square foot, single story Family Resources Center.  The current Family Resources Center is housed within a block of commercial businesses on Peoria’s busy Main Street. The new building is located in a quieter urban neighborhood and adjacent to the Dioceses’ Pastoral Center (a River City project completed in May 2009). To create continuity and a campus-like aesthetic, it features the same brick and stone exterior as the Pastoral Center.

The Center provides staff, parishioners and clients with a library-like atmosphere including spacious collections area, children’s room, devotional space, offices, conference room, and other amenities for the Center.  The basement includes a meeting room, kitchen and restroom facilities, and new sewing room/work room for the Christ Child’s Society.
