The Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center is a three-story building situated on a three acre downtown site in Quincy, Ill. Quincy sits on the Mississippi River and is located about 140 miles north of St. Louis, Mo. The project is located in the Downtown Historic Business District within two blocks of residential neighborhoods. The facility’s comprehensive services provides access to physical fitness, recreation, arts engagement, adult education and employment services for low-income families and individuals of all ages. The 96,000 sq. ft. building features a gym, community and youth rooms, a kitchen, classrooms and administrative and office space for the Salvation Army. The new facility is one of six Kroc Centers built in the Salvation Army’s Central Territory with funding from the estate of philanthropist Joan Kroc, the late wife of McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc, who envisioned these centers providing quality programs and services for at-risk youth, families and individuals.
