Synergy Services Children’s Center
Providing a safe place to grow and stay
This project began with a donation of land and a house from its previous owner, Judge Stephen Pratt. When Synergy decided to expand, the Pratt Property was the perfect location. The nearly 100-year-old farmhouse was repurposed to function as counseling rooms, a therapeutic art room, and a living room space. The Children’s Center provides advocacy programs, mentoring, educational services, and group and play therapies. The addition to the house added a dining room, bathrooms, bedrooms and a large open multi-purpose great room. Additionally, the 6-acre site was preserved as much as possible and includes an exterior playground and room for a future sustainable garden that the children and staff will use to grow fresh fruits and vegetables.
