Relationship to Abuser
The proposed daycare core is located on the D’Hemecourt Street side to provide easy and safe access to the street for drop off. It also provides an opportunity for natural light in all classroom spaces and visual connection to the park across the street.
The proposed classrooms are separated by age groups that include (1) classrooms for infants, (2) classrooms for toddlers, and (3) classrooms for pre-school/school age children. Toddler and pre-school classrooms are grouped to utilize bathroom and storage spaces between classrooms
Battered Women Counseling Offices
The proposed wing consolidates the majority these offices into 6 offices that can provide both group and individual counseling.
The waiting room is considered an area of refuge to collect thoughts and wait to be seen by a counselor. This enforces the need to provide a mental level of privacy and security as well as a physical barrier from other functions in the facility.
