The Tulsa C.A.R.E.S. renovation and addition project was a labor of love for the City of Tulsa. Founded in 1991, the philanthropic organization provides opportunities for healthy living for community members affected by HIV/AIDS. With a contract value of $2.5 million, the 16,200 square foot facility is a seamless melding of three separate buildings. A 1940s 3,100 square foot wood-framed church formed the initial structure, which required structural reinforcement. The second was a 10,000 square foot 1970s addition. A 3,000 square foot concrete slab was poured for the new addition, and the three buildings were united. Staff now have a structurally sound, renovated, and new, large building where they can provide social services to those affected by this disease, with rooms where people can receive care coordination, mental counseling, and housing assistance. A full kitchen serves hot meals, and the dining hall doubles as a banquet room, with an audio/video system and large projector screen.
