The 10,000-square-foot First Stop Family Services Center opened in August 2011. Located on an expansive site in the historic mill community of Harrisburg, and nestled along the Augusta Canal, the Kroc center campus is designed to complement the nearby Sibley and King mills—extraordinary brick structures that showcase Augusta’s textile heritage.
Cheatham Fletcher Scott Architects designed the project in association with Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture. The building design draws architectural cues from the nearby mills and seeks to be a friendly neighbor to the historic Ezekiel Harris House across Broad Street. “The facility is as beautiful as we’d ever dreamt it would be,” says Captain Todd Mason, Kroc Administrator in Augusta.
