The North End Family Centre is moving to a bigger, better space.
The community resource centre at 1322 Main Street has outgrown its current location and will move just up the street to 1344 Main, tripling the space up to 3,000-square-feet.
“It is way too small to serve the 1,200 visits we average every month,” executive director Kyle Mason said of the present location. “We have reached the maximum of what we can do and it’s time to move.”
The new location will add a kitchen to offer food-related programs, a learning centre for community groups and workshops, a multipurpose room, and a dedicated storage room for hygiene items and clothes.
The final project budget is yet to be finalized but it is estimated that over $90,000 will be needed for renovations and other project costs.
“The building requires extensive renovations to suit the community’s needs. So we are asking the good people of Winnipeg and all of Manitoba to partner with us and support this important project,” Mason added.
