St. Louis Campus Construction Heading Toward Big Finish!

For several months, Great Circle’s new Baumstark Community Impact Center and Orthwein Fieldhouse has been slowly taking shape on the St. Louis campus. From digging the foundation to creating structural framework, from laying in brick to installing miles of electrical cable, it’s been a wonderful opportunity for visitors, staff and clients to observe and learn about the construction process.

Watch two videos Great Circle has posted, and you too can experience those months of work in just a few minutes, plus get a sneak peek inside to learn more about how the $21.5 million “Campaign for the Path Ahead” that is making this possible.

The campaign is transforming the campus into a regional engagement center where families and individuals can access behavioral health services and support when it’s most needed. Already, we’ve made significant improvements to our on-campus residential facilities, and our school and educational services. That means we’re now able to serve more students struggling with emotional and behavioral health challenges, or who are on the autism spectrum.

When completed in late 2017, the Community Impact Center and Fieldhouse will have expanded space for community-wide programming and additional family resources, along with additional recreational space for team sports and individualized activities specially designed for youth with special needs.
