The Old First Ward Community Center
FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR:
Things are still moving very quickly.
As a City owned building, the Old First Ward Center is required to close to the public. Effective immediately, we are reducing our on-site staff to one person.
Meals will still be distributed to school age youth via take-out orders. Distribution is from 12:00pm-1:00pm every weekday from our kitchen door at 62 Republic Street.
The Buffalo River Food Pantry will distribute pre-boxed food items to eligible clients on THURSDAYS ONLY from 9:00am-12:00pm.
The Weatherization Workshop initially scheduled for Thursday March 26th at 11am will now take place on Thursday May 7th at 11am.
The Fair Housing & Tenants' Rights Workshop initially scheduled for Tuesday April 14th at 6pm will now take place Wednesday June 17th at 6pm.
