The doors are about to open on two critical new community centers created to help an underserved area of the community improve access to educational programs.
A new Solano Elementary Enrollment and Resource Center will celebrate its grand opening and host an open house for the community on Friday, June 10 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., and concurrently, a new Longview Elementary School Head Start Building will debut and open to the public on the same date and time.
The facilities will be hubs of community collaboration and have been renovated into new early childhood and social service professional space. The two brand new facilities are in the Osborn School District and will serve as Enrollment and Resource Centers for families with children birth to age 5.
Members of the media are invited to attend the open house and interview members of the community and leaders of the new center. To arrange coverage, contact Tom Evans at the information above.
