Adams Square Family Center

The Rescue Mission

Tacoma, WA

27,000 sf

Responding to the growing need to create housing for homeless women and families, Adams Square Family Center is one of the region’s first dedicated emergency and transitional residential communities. The comforting lodge-style design is welcoming to patrons, with covered porches, warm finishes, and natural lighting. In addition to 60 beds of private family units and apartments, the center offers children’s activities and educational and treatment programs to help patrons prepare to return to permanent housing. To realize the project, BCRA expeditiously worked to gain multiple jurisdictional approvals, including a two-week redo of the site’s comprehensive plan, followed by a rezone application and Conditional Use Permit.
