County Judge Clay Jenkins, Sheriff Lupe Valdez and Dallas City Council members Adam Medrano and Jennifer Gates helped Resource Center officials break ground for the new Resource Center facility at 5714 Cedar Springs Road at 10:30 a.m. this morning (Thursday, April 23). Current and past board members gathered along with representatives of many of the groups that meet at Resource Center. Among the early board members who attended were Bruce Monroe, Deb Elder and Ron Allen. Omar Narvaez was representing Dallas County Schools as a Trustee.

Resource Center CEO announced the capital campaign is 28 percent away from its goal with about $2.5 million left to raise over the next year.

Rain threatened but mostly held out through the ceremony that included leaders of more than half a dozen groups that have used Resource Center through the years for meetings, religious services, support groups and as a source of legal information.

Once the new building is completed, the old buildings at 2701 Reagan St. will be renovated as offices.

The new building is adjacent to Cathedral of Hope.
