After more than three years of gathering support and funds, Encompass will break ground on its new pediatric therapy and early learning center in Snoqualmie on June 29, 2020. The facility will be constructed on the old “Honey Farm” site at the corner of 384th Ave. SE and SE Kimball Creek Dr. in Snoqualmie.
Due to COVID-19 public health considerations, the groundbreaking will be practical rather than ceremonial, and Encompass plans to celebrate the new building with the community later in the construction process when it is deemed safe to do so.
In addition to the generosity of individual community members, recent grants from the Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound, the Medina Foundation, and the Norcliffe Foundation pushed Encompass over the 90% threshold of the project’s fundraising goal needed to begin construction.
“It has been a long road to get us to this point, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to begin to put our plans for Encompass Snoqualmie into action,” said Encompass Executive Director, Nela Cumming. “The generous support from our community has enabled us to build a facility that will help children thrive for generations to come.”
Signal Architecture + Research designed the new building for Encompass, and Abbott Construction will begin construction this summer, with a tentative completion date of May 2021. Following a summer grand opening, Encompass plans to be fully open for services in August 2021.
With the new planned facility in Snoqualmie, Encompass will be able to increase the number of children served by 30%, create space for 36 additional children to attend half-day preschool, double the capacity of Behavioral Health programs like Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, and offer exciting new therapeutic programs.
