PROVIDENCE – The Providence Center has received a $128,615 grant from the Champlin Foundations to help fund new windows at the center’s 530 North Main St. location.
“We are very thankful for Champlin’s support,” Dale K. Klatzker, president and CEO of The Providence Center, said in prepared remarks. “The grant allows us to continue to provide comprehensive services to our state’s most vulnerable citizens, while ensuring that our building is efficient and environmentally friendly.”
The Providence Center’s adult services – includes its integrated primary-behavioral clinic, employment and education services, and emergency and outpatient services for mental health and substance abuse – all operate out of the North Main Street location.
According to a release, appointments at 530 North Main St. average roughly 150,000 per year, with more than 10,000 people served annually.
The Champlin Foundations grant will fund the reconstruction of the building’s second floor with the installation of new thermal aluminum windows on a portion of the first floor and on the entire second floor.
The upgrades will improve the facility’s cost-effectiveness, reduce its carbon footprint as well as increase the building’s service capacity and ability to improve the experience of customers. Consultants have estimated that the replacement of the building’s windows will save more than $12,000 per year, according to the center.
