Summit County community nonprofits break ground on exciting new collaborative space
Sol Center, a project of Family & Intercultural Resource Center and Building Hope, broke ground on June 9. The 18,000-square-foot center will offer a food market and thrift store, in addition to office space and conference rooms for these two nonprofits and others.
Alpine Bank is a trusted partner of both organizations, and its early, generous support helped the Sol Center become a reality.
The collaborative joint capital campaign and the shared space of the Sol Center promise to promote an even greater level of partnership among local nonprofits. In addition to a vibrant new space, citizens can expect more services that promote stable families and connected communities.
“The Sol Center will also result in significant overhead cost-savings of an estimated $200,000 annually,” said FIRC Executive Director Brianne Snow. “These funds will go directly back to the community in the form of food, medical, mental health and housing assistance.”
Collaboration is key to each nonprofits success.
“We believe in the power of people and their collaborative efforts to transform communities. Sol Center is just that, organizations coming together to optimize their efforts for greater impact.”
