Faith Assembly Christian Center

Faith Assembly Christian Center, Durham, NC

The Faith Assembly Christian Center has a daycare center which was in dire need of refurbishing.  The Center serves low income families, many single parent families and has the capacity for 50 children.  NC112’s Leadership project took the dark, dreary classrooms and created a colorful, bright, cheerful, exciting environment for learning.  The renovation involved the full replacement of the ceiling tiles, painting of the walls, carpeting of one of the classrooms along with bright, cheerful educational area carpets for the floors, all new classroom desks, chairs, changing tables for infants, new vanities and sinks, several new doors, new light covers and bulbs for all ceiling fixtures, along with new books and educational toys.  The playground was also transformed by staining the play set, building a sand box, placing a climb and crawl set for the infants and toddlers, and provided two 5-seat buggies for the children to be taken for walks.  A space was created that the children would be excited to see each day and would give them a space to dream and learn.  Budget:  $25,500.
