PCHAS Celebrates Renovations


PCHAS hosted a celebration on its Itasca campus this past September to debut campus improvements. Renovations were made to the tennis court, swimming pool and gym. The tennis court renovations include a resurfaced court, additional lights and a freshly-painted fence.  The Purcell-Shoap Gymnasium renovations included a renovated ceiling, remodeled bathrooms and a state-of-the-art weight room.  A beautiful wooden pergola and outdoor furniture were added to the deck surrounding the swimming pool.  The campus is also now graced by a nine-hole Frisbee golf course, a favorite of the kids.


After a reception, visitors were given a tour.  Some of the visitors were former residents who enjoyed being back on campus.

Kyle Mitchell, director of the Group Home programs on the Itasca and Waxahachie campuses, is thrilled with the renovations. “There is something for every kid at every fitness level,” said Kyle. “I’m so grateful to the supporters who made this possible!”

“The renovations were made possible by a generous donation from a very loving and caring family,” said Rev. Peter D. Crouch, Vice President for Development. “A plaque inside the gym recognizes their long-term friendship with PCHAS.  We thank them for their prayers and support.”
