LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) -An Hispanic center project in Lexington is closer to becoming a reality.
The groundbreaking ceremony took place for the new facility Tuesday morning.
The owners of the center are a husband and wife who have worked in Hispanic ministry for nearly 20 years.
They say it became obvious many needs were not being met.
To help, they say the center will have several services including medical screenings, legal services, and counseling.
There will be classes where people can learn how to speak better English or learn about the basics of parenting.
“So, it’s just our way of giving back and helping close the gap on some of the needs that the Hispanic community needs,” said James D. Bennett, Owner.
The center will have a chapel and an open space for events.
Construction is underway and should take about one year to complete.
