The Salvation Army
Prime Architect in association with Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture
When Joan Kroc, widow of McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc, passed away in October 2003, she left $1.5 billion to The Salvation Army. This was by far the largest charitable gift ever given to the organization. The money was designated to build a series of state-of-the-art Salvation Army community centers nationwide. This cornerstone community destination facility is one of the largest in the family of Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Centers nationwide.
The many amenities include: a multipurpose room/events hall, with seating 250 for a banquet; classrooms; teen game room; computer room; arts and crafts room, a library; child watch/ babysitting room; a community wellness center; a gymnasium accommodating three NBA- sized basketball courts and nine volleyball courts; a 348-seat chapel/ performing arts theater; a mission services center, a 1/8 mile elevated walk/ jog track; rock-climbing wall, two-ring boxing center; and outdoor fields with concessions and an outdoor amphitheater.
Visitors can also enjoy the 23,600-sf, indoor aquatic center includes an indoor warm-water leisure pool with a hot-water whirlpool spa, outdoor spray gardens.
