The Mission

-A A +A
1989, John Dengler and Associates. 400 Linden Center Dr. and Linden St.

The Mission, which started as a project of local Catholic community service agencies and was built with multidenominational support, incorporates men's, women's, and family quarters as well as a cafeteria, a job bank, and an elderly outreach program. The architects used gable roofs to give the Post-modern building a residential look. The beige brick and sandy stucco and a skeletal bell tower subtly suggest a southwestern mission.
