ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Southcentral Foundation has announced it will build a new three-story, $28 million building in a growing area that straddles the University of Alaska and the medical district.

The building should be open in the winter of 2015-2016, the Alaska Dispatch News reported (https://is.gd/gDmdrZ) Wednesday.

The state and the Rasmuson Foundation will contribute about $2 million each toward the cost of the 59,000-square-foot building.

Southcentral Foundation plans to house three of its health programs in the new building, including its growing faith-based training initiative that targets domestic violence, abuse and neglect.

The building will also house Family Wellness Warriors Initiative conferences, held twice a year, said Katherine Gottlieb, president and chief executive officer of Southcentral Foundation.

The conferences are held for five days, when counselors, health care professionals, abuse victims and abusers tell their stories and talk about their childhoods.

The new building will include an auditorium, several group therapy rooms and administrative offices. The foundation also will relocate its learning circles to the new building. The circles cover topics such as nutrition, parenting and addiction, and are held as many as 10 times a week.
