Krause Children's Center Lobby Remodel

Since December 24, 1995, The Krause Children’s Center has been treating abused, neglected, and troubled boys and girls from the entire State of Texas. Treatment includes individual therapy, group therapy, spiritual care, and their own award winning charter school.

In addition to Krause’s residential treatment programs; they provide foster care, foster to adopt, kinship care, and adoption services are provided. They work with the children as they move toward reunification with their families, less restrictive foster care placements or adoption. Family therapy is offered before placement as well as post placement.

The 1500 square foot lobby of the Krause Children’s Center was in dire need of a makeover. The existing space was dark and unwelcoming and it was HomeAid’s vision to create a peaceful space where children, staff and volunteers could gather and interact. In addition, the reception area in the lobby was severely out-of-date and closed up. By completely demolishing the reception desk, HomeAid was able to rebuild an open, contemporary and beautifully finished work area where the staff could enjoy working.

This project was generously underwritten by Newland Communities, through the proceeds of their 2008 Pumpkin Festival in Cinco Ranch.

Work on the lobby included:

Replacement of tile floors; demolition and reconstruction of reception area, including new tile work, countertops, cabinets and bar top; repair and repainting of walls, including installation of crown molding; new furniture and rugs
