A brand new, state-of-the-art resource center for local non-profits and other civic organizations has officially opened its doors here in Houston.

The United Way of Texas Gulf Coast’s new Center for Philanthropy, Leadership and Volunteerism sits on four acres just west of downtown along Allen Parkway. Its 65,000 square foot administration building and 25,000 square foot resource facility will be available to non-profits and civic groups who deal with health and human services issues. The United Way’s Debra King says before the center was built, local non-profits had to meet in local hotels, which is expensive.

The new center is similar to one in Dallas and was paid for with funds separate from the annual United Way campaign. King says it’s all about building a stronger community. Various local corporations and individuals helped pay for the facility, with was completed earlier this year.
