Bollinger Capital Campaign

You can help make dreams come true with a gift to the Capital Campaign at the Bollinger Campus of the Barber National Institute. This $1.4 million project is raising the funds needed to help Bollinger renovate its facilities and expand and enhance services to adults with intellectual disabilities and their families in the Warren-Forest County region.

Renovations are currently underway to the facilities that include:

  • Improved lighting, painting, and flooring to the building at 48 N. State Street, as well as a renovated entrance with a new handicap-accessible ramp, automatic doors, and a covered and heated walkway.
  • Updates at the 44 State Street facility include new lighting and a more modern, welcoming environment with new flooring, lockers and paint, and the addition of new windows. A sidewalk and a new covered patio and picnic area are being added at the back of the facility.
  • An ADA bathroom/changing area with ceiling track lifts to transfer clients, a first aid sickbay and new medication administration area, a new laundry room, and a kitchenette with spacious counters, microwaves, and refrigerators for individuals to use during lunchtime and breaks
  • New programming areas include a computer center and area to view multi-media, a multi-purpose room to enhance staff training, and a conference room close to the main entrance.

Renovations are expected to conclude in mid-September 2022.  Renovation plans have been developed by Larson Karle Architects in Warren and work is being done by Construction Services of Pennsylvania (CSI) headquartered in Union City, PA.
