Across the street from the church is Mary’s Center, a Community Health Center that has been serving the population since 1988. Being right next to the church, the members of the center have been around the church and its community for decades. Part of their mission is to work with others to strengthen the community and provide a better life to those around it. The center has over 45,000 patients per year, and its annual budget is over $45 million, a lot more than the initial $250,000. This location provides background on how the neighborhood was decades ago. The center has been there for 23 years, and has “lived” through all the changes and new trends imposed by society.
