Transitional Homes for Intellectually Disabled Adults

The Baddour Center, Senatobia, Mississippi

The Baddour Center is a 120-acre residential community in Northwest Mississippi that provides the necessary infrastructure to support a full, daily life for adults with intellectual disabilities. The Baddour Center serves individuals across the full spectrum by providing housing, personal care, vocations, recreation, and opportunities for connection and growth spiritually, intellectually, socially, and emotionally. Beyond mere services and physical structures, however, The Baddour Center has created a thriving community in its nearly 40 years of operation.

In support of its mission, to be a model residential community for adults with intellectual disabilities, The Baddour Center completed a comprehensive master plan in 2017 striving to enrich the quality of life for residents, upgrade the campus appearance, strengthen the institution’s financial health, and enhance campus operations.

Multiple projects were planned, including significant housing improvements. In addition to renovating the core of group homes on the campus, The Baddour Center planned two projects that greatly expand their capacity to serve a broader range of residents. The first, the creation of two new 4000 square foot “Transitional Homes for five residents each. “Transitional” means residents live mostly independently with some daytime support from a Direct Support Professional (D.S.P.). The second project includes the renovation and expansion of two existing, 5,000 square-foot buildings into new aging facilities to house and care for a significant portion of Baddour’s residents as they age.

NEW TRANSITIONAL HOMES

The new Transitional homes are sited adjacent to two existing independent homes, Manor and Schneider on the south of the campus along the main campus street, Miracle Drive.  The new houses are composed of a sleeping building and a living building linked by a small threshold.  The 4 new buildings cluster around the two exciting buildings forming an ensemble of forms.  Porches on each of the new living buildings face out to a common space shared with the existing buildings.

The interiors are designed to support the residents’ special needs.  Spaces have a developed to allow appropriate and non-threatening social interaction, open paths promoting choice, and the ability to preview activity before being involved, gathering and private spaces are established and marked by clear thresholds.  Bedrooms are linked to the cycles of the day by light chimneys, have views, and private baths rooms.

This project was led by Duvall Decker Architects. The design team includes: Systems Engineering, Inc, Engineering Resource Group, Inc, and Spencer-Engineers, Inc.
