King Center grows to accommodate more programs
In Atlanta, Georgia, the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center recently held a groundbreaking ceremony for its 6,500-square-foot expansion.
According to Jerry Jones, executive director at the center, programs at the center have been expanding steadily through its 35 years. However, this center expansion represents the first time that the physical structure of the King Center has grown.
Mr. Jones noted that the physical parameters of the center had to grow in order to accommodate more programming. With its expansion, the center will be able to add up to 3,700 square feet for youth programs. The new construction gives the center six additional rooms, which will facilitate separate service to various groups. Practically, his allows the center to, reportedly, serve up to 200 children per day.
