A digitized two-story brick building with an awning that says "Center for Thriving Families." A small frame in the lower left hand corner shows a brick building with red awnings that says "before."

The hub is centrally located and is on two bus lines.

A vacant shopping center in Winston-Salem will become a hub for local children and families. The former Coliseum Park Plaza, located at 711 Coliseum Plaza Ct., will be renovated to house the following organizations:

Imprints Cares purchased the property last summer. It is launching its first capital campaign to raise money for what will become its Center for Thriving Families. The organizations involved say creating a hub will centralize resources, foster more collaboration, and allow them to better address needs across age groups.
Amenities inside the renovated 20,894-sqft building will include three state-of-the-art sensory gyms, treatment rooms, and a demonstration kitchen. The chief operating officer of Hubbard Commercial, the company in charge of renovations, says Salem Montessori School and Key Autism Services are expected to open and begin operating in the fall.
