WEST ROGERS PARK — The Jewish United Fund of Chicago plans to break ground in June to build the Cooper Center, a facility that will house programs for children and adults with special needs.
The fund's Jewish Child and Family Services will operate the center, to be built adjacent to the Joy Faith Knapp Children's Center at 3145 W. Pratt Blvd.
The center — named after the project's main benefactor, the Abe and Ida Cooper Foundation — is expected to open in 2016.
The Cooper Center will serve as the new home of a child development program and expanded services for people with special needs.
