Emergency Infant Services (EIS)
KKT worked with this nonprofit as they sought to streamline and bring efficiencies to their organization, enabling them to more effectively provide services to distressed families in our community.
The project repurposes a large existing building (which served first as a grocery store, then a library, and is now owned by EIS) allowing the organization to centralize their downtown facilities. Their clients now have access to increased parking, a relaxing and secure entry, a shopping boutique and a counseling area. Run largely by volunteers, sorting areas are provided separately from the administration area, but adjacent to provide collaborative space to accommodate sizable teams. Two warehouses are provided that allow greater volumes of incoming shipments to be organized while more bulk storage enables larger purchases. Additionally, a flexible multipurpose space can be transformed from meeting space, to community space, to additional service or donation space as needed.
After clients select items from the 2,500 SF boutique, they drive through a new covered claim area where volunteers load their selections. A large, open waiting area, friendly reception spaces, counseling areas, and children’s play spaces complete the new facility’s welcoming beacon of hope for young Tulsa families.
