Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) announced today the culmination of a dream come true with the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of The Harrell Family Opportunity Center.
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of The Harrell Family Opportunity Center will take place on June 29, 2017 at 2:30 p.m. The building is named after the Harrell Family, one of NAM’s most committed supporters.
“The Harrells always believed in giving a hand up to neighbors in need without expecting anything in return,” explained Carole Little, NAM’s President and CEO. “Along with the Harrells’ generosity and vision, hundreds of other outstanding supporters are the reason why this building stands here today—because they believed in investing in our community’s future. We want to continue transforming lives and this new building is the first step toward that goal.”
The Harrell Family Opportunity Center is the crystallization of NAM’s Capital Campaign, Roots & Wings, which started in January of 2014. This campaign allowed NAM to raise $5,373,885 to start the construction of a new building that would expand NAM’s vocational training and job- readiness program through a robust training center for mid-skills jobs, thus allowing NAM clients to reach financial, professional and emotional independence.
The Harrell Family Opportunity Center will be fully-operational on the day of the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and clients can expect the same quality in vocational training that will allow them to pursue better-paying jobs. Adult education courses such as ESL and GED classes will continue to be taught at the Learning Center in NAM’s main building.
Behind every wall, every window and every brick laid at The Harrell Family Opportunity Centerthere are hundreds of donors, volunteers and employees that helped make this dream become a reality for NAM.
