EMMAUS HOMES UNVEILS NEW 28,000 SQ FT CORPORATE OFFICE IN ST. CHARLES
Emmaus Homes provides 24-hour residential care and other services to more than 250 adults with developmental disabilities. Emmaus has two campuses, in St. Charles, Mo., and Marthasville, Mo., along with more than 50 community homes throughout St. Louis, St. Charles, Franklin, Jefferson and Warren Counties. The move became necessary because Emmaus has outgrown its current space, an aging 112-year-old building on the St. Charles campus.
“The new building will allow us to enhance our client experience, with dynamic new program space,” said Cindy Clark, President & CEO of Emmaus Homes. “This expansion improves our ability to support our clients’ choices to be more independent and live, shop and work in the community. It also gives us the ability to continue to grow in the future, adding new programs, services and employees.”
Emmaus Homes is a United Way organization and one of the state’s largest private providers of 24-hour residential services to adults with developmental disabilities. Emmaus has more than 600 employees and plans to add more than 100 employees by the end of 2014. Many of those new positions have already been filled, but dozens more are still available. The new full-time and part-time staff will support the daily activities of Emmaus clients, helping them live as independently as possible.
“While Emmaus Homes is expanding in the St. Louis region, with new community homes in St. Louis, St. Charles, Franklin, Jefferson and Warren Counties, we felt it was important to keep our headquarters in St. Charles,” said Lisa Drier, Executive Director, Emmaus Resident Trust Foundation. “We see this expansion as a positive move that will allow us to better serve our current and future clients. The new building also includes a collaborative space, designed to enhance the employee experience.”
The new corporate office is expected to open in Spring 2014.
