TALLAHASSEE - On Thursday, March 29, the Department of Children and Families will join Mainline Information Systems, Inc., Mayor John Marks, Leon County Commissioner Bryan Desloge, the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce, ECHO Outreach Ministries, Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida and more than forty organizations, businesses and foundations in a Ribbon
Cutting-Ceremony and Building Dedication for the new Renaissance Community Center in Tallahassee's historic Frenchtown community.
The Ribbon Cutting and Building Dedication will be held on Thursday, March 29, 2012 at 1:30 p.m. at the new Renaissance Community Center at 457 Virginia Street in Tallahassee. Tours of the new Renaissance Community Center will immediately follow.
The Renaissance Community Center will address homelessness in Tallahassee and Leon County and will act as a catalyst for improvement in the Frenchtown community. Tallahassee's homeless population currently does not have a place to access services and resources during the day. The Renaissance Community Center will serve as a one-stop shop for homeless individuals and families to easily access an array of services by local providers. The Center will also be open for numerous community outreach activities during the evening and weekend hours.
Partners seek to reduce the number of homeless residing in local emergency shelters by providing tools and resources to help people return to independence.
In addition to the Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony and Building Dedication, the event will detail plans for helping the homeless in our area and recognize the efforts of key private sector partnerships - the more than 40 business "Partners for Promise - that wholly funded or provided in-kind services for construction of the Center.
