Support Our Phase II Capital
1981, The Center of Family Love (CFL) has been a home to adults
needing special care, many with profound/severe mental and motor
disabilities. Based on 30 years of experience CFL has found that the
well-being of its residents is best served in smaller homes, as in
the award winning Loosen Geriatric Center where each resident has
his/her own bedroom. Thus, the CFL Board voted to embark upon an
ambitious campaign to transform the current campus into a more
home-like facility in order to better serve their residents, people
who depend upon CFL for their care. You may download our Capital Campaign Case Statement HERE.
I of CFL’s capital project was completed in September 2011.
Total cost of Phase I is $4.8 million. This phase includes two new
16-bed intermediate care facilities (ICF) with private rooms and a
home-like atmosphere. Phase I was funded with $1 million in
donations, cash on hand and a $2.8 million loan that is being repaid
with the additional income generated by these beds. The loan was
granted by a consortium of banks based on The Center of Family Love’s
excellent financial situation: no debt, cash in the bank and ability
to leverage the increased rates per bed due to the new construction.
II is a 3-part project consisting of:
the existing 54-bed, 30-year old ICF building into two 16-bed units.
The original ICF was designed on a medical model, like a hospital or
institution, with double, even triple occupancy. The two new 16-bed
units will be home-like with each resident having his/her own
private room. Each unit will have a conference/activity room, and a
much more home-like atmosphere.
for all 64 new bedrooms (32 constructed in Phase I) and the kitchen
and dining areas, TV and lounge areas and other furnishing needs for
the four new home-like ICFs, two of which were completed in Phase I.
