The Highland Youth Center project is one that inspired us to commit a portion of our annual billable hours to organizations in our community that have the need for Architectural and Design services, but cannot afford them.
In conjunction with HOK (Los Angeles), and the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center, we were able to deliver a space that would serve thousands of homeless youth in the Los Angeles community, annually.
The Youth Center is now able to provide employment training, job placement, showers, hot meals, GED study courses, educational workshops, support groups, and HIV / STD testing. The space is also able to accommodate a lending library, activities room, clothing closet, computer lab, and dance room.
