DESCRIPTION: The Community Family Center (CFC) is an
umbrella organization that seeks to provide an improved facility
co-housing five long-standing social services agenices that support
families with young children and seniors. The design
maximizes sharing resources and supporting synergies between the
agencies, while still giving each organization its individual
identity. Working closely with City, School District and Park
District representatives, and many other involved project
stakeholders, Maria Segal has investigated several different
potential locations and represented the CFC's interests as they
negotiate and build concensus for how to get this important project
