Henderson Salvation Army Holds Ribbon Cutting for Recently Remodeled Adult Day Care Center
Published on Wed, Nov 7, 2012 (11:19 a.m.)(Henderson, NV) – The Henderson Salvation Army held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the recently remodeled Adult Day Care Center on Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 10:00 a.m.
Three years ago, the Henderson Salvation Army received $550,000 from the estate of Mary Roberts, the first woman to serve on the Henderson Planning Commission and former president of the city’s Chamber of Commerce, in order to rebuild and remodel the center. The Henderson Salvation Army began construction on the facility in February 2011, and completed the project on schedule.
“Part of the Henderson Salvation Army’s mission statement is to help meet the needs of our residents,” says Major William Cobb, who has spearheaded the project. “This newly remodeled facility will assist us in accomplishing our mission by providing us with the means to better serve our community.”
The Adult Day Care Center provides care for adults with disabilities and seniors that require around-the-clock care. The Adult Day Care Center is a part of the Henderson Corps Community Center, which also serves as a food bank, offers showers for the homeless and provides family services. The Adult Day Care is located at 830 E. Lake Mead in Henderson.
