New Community Center Coming to South Sacramento

Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Joan Graham of the Community Resource Project says it's a good time to bring services to the area, "A lot of people who live in that neighborhood work at Campbell's Soup and are going to be looking for jobs.  So, to have an employment and training program that is in their neighborhood will help people to find employment."

Graham says there will be offices for social service agencies like the Women, Infants and Children program.

The building will be at the corner of 41st Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Construction is set to begin June 1st.

Graham says the building is named after the late founder of her organization.  Louise Perez led the efforts in the last decade to make the center a reality.

A conference room in the new building will be named after the late Vu Nguyen. He was a Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy who was killed chasing a gang member near the location of the new center.  
Construction of the center was originally scheduled to begin in 2008.  A bad economy delayed construction, but Graham says the delay saved them more than a million dollars in construction costs. 
Services are expected to be available in early 2014.
