Fort Worth Community Center Breaks Ground, 1800 CAR WRECK Lends Support Eberstein & Witherite gives to help build the new Bethlehem Community Center, which has provided resources for underprivileged kids in Fort Worth for 75 years.
FORT WORTH, Texas, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- State Rep. Nicole Collier, an attorney with the Eberstein & Witherite law firm, joined Tarrant County Commissioner Roy Brooks and others at a groundbreaking ceremony for the reconstruction of the Bethlehem Community Center on Friday, April 4. The historic community center, which first opened in 1939, has been a safe haven for many disadvantaged children in the Fort Worth community, and will soon be rebuilt thanks to the longstanding efforts of volunteers who set out in 2007 to have it restored.
Pushing Forward for a Brighter Tomorrow
The Bethlehem Community Center rebuilding project is a long awaited effort made possible by grants and donations raised by a committee comprised of volunteers seeking to continue the mission of United Community Centers, which operates facilities like Bethlehem. The community center in its previous condition was in disrepair with limited spacing to effectively implement new program plans, some have stated. Celia Esparza, CEO of United Community Centers, recently told the Fort Worth Star Telegram, "Bethlehem's roof leaks, there's no air conditioning, the layout is ineffective for classroom teaching, storage is makeshift and spaces are cramped."
The call for support in rebuilding the center was widespread, in part due to the heavy reliance on Bethlehem by kids and teens who benefit significantly from provided services. The community center serves meals during the school year and in the summer, in addition to providing other social services.
Says attorney Amy Witherite of the Eberstein & Witherite firm, "we doubled our donation when I heard a story about a boy who only gets to eat if the community center feeds him. He has breakfast, lunch and a snack there everyday or else he doesn't eat."
Eberstein & Witherite attorneys say they look forward to seeing the newly constructed 16,000-square-foot building upon completion of the project, which is expected for next spring.
