Hawkins TX Community Center &Garden
(Hawkins, Texas) This is your chance to help East Texan artists by contributing to the purchase of this Community Center property.
THE EAST TEXAS TOWN OF HAWKINS IS ESTABLISHING A LEADING COMMUNITY PRESENCE TO DEFEAT POVERTY.
The Helping Hands Network (HHN) founder has spent 2 years building a support network in the East Texas community of Hawkins Texas. Business partners have been established; volunteers have been organized and trained; and now a community center is ready to be developed.
First option to purchase the community center property has been offered to HHN and they need to raise $50,000 to finance and improve it.
(You can visit this link on FLIKR to scroll your cursor and look around many pictures of the property!)
The location of the property is perfect for the newest HHN addition because there are several groups working together to improve the impoverished neighborhood.
The Hawkins / Holy Lake Ranch area churches work together to support one central Helping Hand Mission to provide food, shelter and household emergency items to those in need. This mission is one block from the HHN community center.
The Hawkins area Chamber of Commerce is developing a business incubator location to provide job training to help improve the poverty and homeless problems. This location is 2 blocks from the HHN site.
The City of Hawkins has developed a community park with updated features on the same street as the HHN site.
There is a partnering motel on the same street that can provide emergency shelter to those homeless during disaster relief situations.
The HHN is working with these groups by providing business skill training, survival workshops, wellness classes and other wonderful events at the community center property. The two story complex is perfect for the program.
The upper level provides office space, storage and a wellness studio where visitors have events like yoga and movie/game nights. The lower level will be developed for emergency shelter, group meals, classroom training and art studio space. A community garden is in the second year of growth on the surrounding property.
IF enough money is not raised soon, the property will be sold to the public and the community center and garden program will be forced to start over so please donate if you can.
Thank you for your consideration.
