FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER +
UTICA CHILDREN'S MUSEUM

In partnership with ICAN, CSArch is renovating an existing 40,000 sf building in Utica's Parkway District into the new home for the ICAN Family Resource Center and Utica Children's Museum.

This promises to be a destination that will add to the rich mix of offerings for families in the Parkway District, the City of Utica, and our region as a whole.”

A Model Facility

The completed building will unite ICAN's youth and family programs and the Utica Children's Museum to become a first-of-its-kind and serve as a model for programs across the United State.

Family Resource Center

Located on the first and third floors of the building, the Family Resource Center will house administrative departments and ICAN programs to provide families with traditional and non-traditional services that promote their health and well-being.

Utica Children's Museum

The 21st century Utica Children's Museum will occupy the second floor of the existing building. A 4,000 sf addition in the shape of a translucent drum will feature a reception area, lobby, gift shop, two-story climbing structure, and stairway that leads into the upper-level museum exhibits.

Project Scope

Integrated Community Alternatives Network (ICAN) is a nonprofit organization that provides traditional and non-traditional services to families and individuals with unique needs. With CSArch as a partner, ICAN is planning to combine its services with the Utica Children’s Museum and relocate from an antiquated space to a more centralized, modernized, and visible location on the Parkway in Utica, NY. 

Previously occupied by the Utica City School District, the new building will help bring children and families together, increase access to supportive services, promote social-emotional learning opportunities, and serve as a community anchor within the greater Utica area and entire Mohawk Valleu region. The completed project will also be certified as a universally designed building by the University of Buffalo IDEA Center.
