Expansion of Sinnissippi Centers begins

DIXON – Sinnissippi Centers broke ground this week on an expansion project at the agency’s Dixon office.

The agency’s president says the 3,000-square-foot addition is being built to better serve the needs of people with mental illnesses, substance use disorders, and other behavioral health-care needs.

“Currently, space at our Dixon office is at a real premium,” Patrick Phelan, Sinnissippi Centers CEO and president, said in a news release. “Some offices currently house two or more staff members, and we needed to increase the available office space to alleviate this problem and to meet the increasing need for services we continue to see.

“Once completed, the expansion will allow Sinnissippi to provide the best possible environment for our clients.”

The project will add 10 to 12 offices and update the Skill Mill, a workshop that offers vocational skills training and employment opportunities for people with mental illnesses by providing various services to local manufacturers and businesses.

The Dixon office expansion project has been in the planning stage for more than a year. Construction will continue through the fall with an anticipated completion date in April 2014.
