T-O has teamed with local non-profit Advocates Against Family Violence (AAFV) to provide a $4 million expansion to Hope Plaza.
Since inception, Hope Plaza provided nearly 1,500 women and children shelter while AAFV provided 11,000 services to people in the community.
Hope Plaza II will serve as a multi-use, all-inclusive campus focused on providing victim assistance with the goal of becoming the premier domestic violence and sexual assault victim service center in the Treasure Valley/Idaho. The expansion will include:
Shelter Residence (Two-Year Transitional Housing)
Office space for community partners providing victim specific services
Terry Reily Health Services Clinic
T-O Engineers began working with AAFV in 2010, providing construction assistance for Hope Plaza Phase 1, which constructed 48 affordable housing apartments and an administrative building.
“Working with the staff and supporters of Hope Plaza is extremely rewarding,” said Project Manager, Patrick Colwell, P.E. “We appreciate working on this project because we know it provides important services to our community, and we look forward to continuing our work with AAFV.”
T-O will continue their relationship with AAFV by providing full surveying and civil design services for Hope Plaza II.
