Have you heard the news? Jacob’s Village much-needed community center is well-underway. Walls are up and the timeline for completion is Nov. 2016! The 3,700 square foot building will be the centerpiece of our expanding neighborhood, and will offer the space and amenities that have long been part of our vision: a multipurpose room that will accommodate 50 people, a reception area and social gathering space, an exercise/therapy room, and computer workstations for residents’ use, as well as administrative offices, a catering kitchen, badly needed storage space and a covered outdoor patio. The center will be within comfortable walking distance of our residents’ homes and fully accessible to those in wheelchairs, walkers and scooters. Ample parking will be available for visitors.
Active minds and bodies, and meaningful relationships with others, are critical to our residents’ well-being. We currently have no indoor space large enough to comfortably house social gatherings and group activities, which are confined to the living room in one of our homes. When the activities include volunteers and visitors, it often is so crowded that groups must be split, and some activities are simply not possible. Imagine the possibilities this new space will offer! If you would like to donate to the Community Center effort, please contact Development Director, Laura Hurt at 812.598.4122
