Why would anyone support a building; even a non-profit building?
Because we have to. As the images above indicate, life is not always as it should be. WHCC supports thousands of young people and adults in their effort to turn their lives around, to find healing, opportunity and hope. And that is exactly what the West Houston Community Center does each day, seven days a week, throughout the year.
The WHCC building includes meeting rooms, offices, an auditorium, a recreation room and coffee bar. The design of the Center is intended to reinforce its mission by being a safe, comfortable, and welcoming structure, to accommodate a variety of uses by many groups.
WHCC provides quarters for seven core programs: Palmer Drug Abuse Program, Alcoholics Anonymous, Fellowship Of Memorial, Mosaic Theatre Company, Family Point Resources, Young Life, and Cocaine Anonymous. Each one of these groups touches the Houston community in important ways.
One of the AA groups who use the building summed up for us why support for WHCC is so important:
Thank you for letting us meet at WHCC. As you know, there are hundreds of people of all ages and backgrounds who regularly attend MGHG or other AA or similar groups at WHCC seven days and evenings a week throughout the year. We have come to know WHCC as a place where people can get help, change their way of life, and grow on a daily basis in their relationships at home, on the job, and in the community.
So who wants to support a building? We hope you will, because you know that when you support WHCC you are supporting all of those who use this facility now and those who will need it in the future.
