The Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency has recently acquired the “Super 8 Motel” located at 1288 Hawthorne NE in Salem, Oregon. AC+Co Architecture | Community is thrilled to have been selected as the architectural team to lead the project in reaching the goal of converting this building into a usable working transitional shelter for individuals and families in our community that are in need of this service. The intention of this project is to be able to house people in need of this service and use it as a first step in assisting them in finding more permanent living quarters. We will be working hard to get this open under Emergency Shelter Provisions as soon as possible and continue to renovate the building to create a facility that functions seamlessly in this role.
