Newly Renovated Lee Davis Center Modernizes Services
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Sept. 28, 2017) - Hillsborough County invites residents of all ages to get a first look at the state-of-the-art, renovated Lee Davis Community Resource Center during the building's ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, Oct. 2 at 10 a.m.
The center, located at 3402 N. 22nd Street, is modernized for improved functionality, safety, and cleanliness, and will house several County department services and programs, including Aging Services, Health Care Services, Head Start, Library Services, and Social Services. Additionally, there will be two on-site community partners: Derrick Brooks Charities and the Sickle Cell Association of Hillsborough County.
Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, visitors are invited to stay for an open house to explore the building's new additions, including:
- Head Start Program offices and classrooms. In addition to providing children with a place to develop, the Head Start Program at Lee Davis will also offer services to the entire family unit and the community at large.
- Health Care Services' Healthy Living Center. The center will offer County Health Care Plan members preventative health care services, including exercise equipment and a group fitness room, wellness classrooms, and nutrition and exercise programs.
- Library Services' Public Computer Lab. Library staff will be on site to help residents access the internet, use Microsoft Office programs, and print, scan, and copy documents.
- Queen R. Miller Suite. While chair of the Lee Davis Health Consumer Council in the 1970s, Ms. Queen R. Miller's advocacy and work with local government and members of the business community led to the creation of the Lee Davis Community Resource Center. The suite will be a space for community members to gather and hold meetings.
- Aging Services' Lee Davis Senior Center. This senior center will offer congregate meals for seniors 60 years of age and older, as well as programming focused on seniors' wellness.
- Social Services case management and stabilization services. This includes basic living needs, housing, education, and training.
The $2.8 million renovation began in March 2016 and was completed this summer.
