Over the course of 2019 and 2020, we had the opportunity to share our impact and plan with several in our community that have a heart for Spokane. It has resonated well and, to date, we’ve raised all the funds to complete the renovation and expansion of our four residential cottages as well as the funding designated to address staff and program development. Now that we have completed our rst two phases, we are largely focused on acquiring the funds for our nal phase, the renovations and construction in Hutton’s Administration Building.
Hutton’s Administration Building is central to our organization’s operations. The building includes housing for our direct- care staff, dorm accommodations for Hutton alum, educational classroom space, a historic auditorium utilized year-round, a commercial kitchen utilized by the culinary arts team and for campus events, laundry equipment and staff of ces. Throughout Hutton’s history, the administration building has been an extremely exible space that meets many needs. This project would allow for critical updates that would continue to accommodate that same flexibility.
In addition to upgrades and repairs to help standardize campus infrastructure, the Board of Trustees approved the relocation of Hutton’s Aministrative of ces from its current off-site downtown location to Hutton’s Wellesley campus.
Thanks to the M.J. Murdock Trust, the William W. Cowles Foundation, Washington Trust Bank and the Francis Younkin Trust, this project (including Hutton Settlement’s largest building addition) is well underway with an expected completion date of Fall 2023.
