Mid-Columbia Community Action’s new navigation center has been christened the Gloria Center. The name honors the late Gloria Schultens. who donated the property at 2505 West 7th that will be the location for the facility. The naming announcement was made at a groundbreaking ceremony this morning. Community Action Executive Director Kenny LaPoint said Schultens had a vision for the project. The Gloria Center is targeted to open at the start of next year, and will serve as a multi-agency service center and emergency overnight shelter. It is intended to be a one-stop resource hub providing services that work toward eliminating poverty and houselessness in the community. The agencies to be housed at the Center include Community Action, the Mid-Columbia Center for Living, One Community Health, the Oregon Human Development Corporation, Nch’Iwana Housing, the Department of Human Services, the Columbia Gorge Health Council, and its Bridges to Health program.
