Kidworks Grand Opening
 

The New KidWorks Donahue Center held it's grand opening on Thursday, October 27, 2005.  KidWorks executive director, Ava Steaffens, realized the potential for a community center at the 1902 West Chestnut Avenue property and utilized a $628,564 grant/loan from the Federal Empowerment Zone, along with donated private funds, to renovate a vacant industrial building and operate a new community center for Santa Ana and Empowerment Zone residents.

The new 10,000-square-foot center will have a licensed preschool, tutoring lab, library, two computer labs and a health center.  The Donahue Center will provide both youth and adult services to anyone living in the 92703 and 92704 zip codes for a monthly fee of $5.
