The Augusta Levy Learning Center will soon be moving into a new temporary home.
ALLC announced that it will be moving into a space on the second floor above the Children’s Museum at 1000 Main Street in Wheeling on August 13.
It’s former location inside Sacred Heart Church was destroyed by a fire on July 7.
Executive Director Angela Wood said in a press release that they wanted to find a space where children could receive their therapy and remain safe and together while the ALLC searches for its permanent home.
“We are so grateful for all the community support and to all of the people and organizations that have reached out to us to offer us space, supplies, toys, and to volunteer. We have spent the past few weeks visiting spaces, and after meeting with our board, decided this space was best suited for our children’s needs,” Wood said.
Once they are settled into the space, Augusta Levy Learning Center says it will have an open house.
“We are so grateful to the Regional Economic Development Partnership and Craig O’Leary for finding this space for us. We hope to find Augusta Levy’s permanent home by the end of 2019 and will begin that search as soon as we are settled into this building. ALLC was started in a Sunday school room at Mt. Zion Church and has grown immensely since then. We now serve 23 children and are looking for enough space to serve more children on our waiting list of over 100. ALLC has come a long way and has overcome astronomical obstacles and we are optimistic that we will find our forever home soon,” Wood continued.
