The Center for Changing Lives (CFCL) project entailed the redevelopment of an existing site to create a 54,000 sq. ft. building in the Phillips community of south Minneapolis, MN.
The CFCL redevelopment houses five community-based organizations and neighborhood social service providers. The primary tenant, Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota (LSS), occupies 44,000 sq. ft. of the new space.
Together, these organizations offer a wide array of services related to: employment, mental and physical health, youth and family counseling, foster care, refugee resettlement, and financial literacy.
The CFCL redevelopment has allowed LSS to serve thousands of individuals and families more effectively and ensure the local presence of an important anchor institution.
