Administrative personnel at The Children’s Bureau Inc. recently moved into offices on the second floor of the Gene
Glick Family Support Center, a building that opened last summer at the southeast corner of 16th and Martin Luther King, Jr.
The headquarters move represents the first time in 50 years that Children’s Bureau administrators have worked in the same building that houses their programs for families and children in crisis.
The bureau, formerly headquartered in the English Building on Alabama Street, is a state-licensed, not-for-profit agency that provides counseling, adoption, foster care, group home care and a crisis shelter.
The new $9.2 million building incorporates “green” design and construction practices. It houses a children’s shelter and includes space for supervised visits, the child-care voucher program and a full-size gym and multipurpose room.•
