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.”
