Project FAITH plans community center

King George Director of Economic Development Nicole Thompson last week provided more details to the Board of Supervisors on a project being planned by Project FAITH, Inc., to develop and construct a community HELP Center.
“HELP” is an acronym for Health, Higher Education, Learning, Parenting assistance center.
Thompson pointed out to supervisors that the community center will provide comprehensive wrap-around services to families with low-to-moderate incomes.
The HELP Center will be a large office complex, planned to contain 40,000+ square feet.
Its conceptual design plan notes that the building will “combine social, economic and environmental sustainability in a visually appealing community service center with convenient public access and ample preserved green space.”

Is it summer yet?

 

The brightly colored palm trees at Tim’s II in Fairview Beach starkly contrast the frozen waves lapping the banks of the Potomac River. Last week, temperatures stayed low, with a high of 38 and a low of 16 degrees.
Temperatures reached a high of 52 degrees and a low of 21 during the same week last year.
