Walking through the front door you will see the staff staircase and a doorway that leads into the Client-side, which opens directly into the Dining Hall. All dark wood in the entryway will be repainted to a white, to lighten this space. To the left is the Family Room and to the right is the Client Intake Office.

Looking at the front door, which will be a historical replica of the original, surrounded by beautiful leaded glass windows that will be restored.

Walking into the Client-side through the doorway in the entry, you walk into the Dining Hall where we will have two tables that seat everyone in the house for true family-style dining. Looking straight you see doorways that lead into the Community Room. To the left is the Kitchen. And to the right is the Living Room.
