Salvation Army gets help from local volunteers to open a community center!
A Salvation Army-owned building at the corner of 4th Street and Ross Avenue in El Centro is being transformed into a community center with some volunteer manpower from area churches.
For the last dozen years or so, the building was leased to a dialysis center. After it left, the Army decided to turn the building into a place where folks can come for parenting or English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, or children’s programs in the arts and music.
Captain Jerry Esqueda – our leader in El Centro – has a big vision for what God can do with the building on 4th and Ross. He wants it to be a safe haven for kids, where they can build confidence and learn about life’s options. He’s even hoping that one day they’ll be able to add a recording studio for budding young musicians in the area.
