Community center opens in Pensacola

A new community center is expected to open in Pensacola as early as next month.
"The Well" Community Center will open on the property of the former Allie Yniesta Elementary School on the 2,300 block of Jackson Street. The school board is leasing the property to remnant church of deliverance christian academy.

It's based out of Evergreen Park, Illinois, but also holds services in Pensacola. Pastor Tauro Jenkins says he hopes the property is once again a place for children.

"One of the things we're going to do is planning to do is having a community center, and in this community center, our goal is to make sure we provide for educational training and development and personal development"

Jenkins hopes to enroll 125 youngsters in a two-week summer program before the school year starts.
