Enjoying our new space!

Six months later and with a whole new look the Hampden Family Center’s renovation is complete. For more than a month we have been delivering programs and services in the newly renovated Family Center and everyone is loving our new space and its elevator! The new Center is complete with energy-saving technology, multiple offices for benefits assistance and services, brand new classrooms for GED and computer classes, and a wonderful space for our summer enrichment and after-school programs. We are very grateful to our Capital Campaign Co-Chairs; John Kemp and Bob Schaefer who rallied the forces in our fundraising efforts and to the many foundations and individuals who supported the campaign. There will be an Open House for the public on Thursday, June 8th from 3-7pm. Please stop by for a tour of the new space and enjoy some refreshments.
