HUD Homes and Communities: Vega Place – First All-Seniors Complex in Fort Worth Opens Learning Center
Fort Worth Multifamily Hub staff recently joined the property managers and residents of the Vega Place Senior Apartments August 16, in celebrating the grand opening of Fort Worth’s first-ever Neighborhood Networks Learning Center in an “all-seniors” housing complex. The Vega Place Neighborhood Networks Learning Center became the learning and activities center of the one-hundred-plus Section 8-assisted senior citizens living at the complex and the numerous other elderly citizens who will also participate in the activities offered at the center.
The learning center includes a computer center equipped with four stand-alone computers, two lap-top computers, a printer, a scanner and a digital camera, most of which were donated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Fort Worth office. The facility also includes a clothes care center and a club room which is transformed every first and third Tuesday of the month into a grocery store for the Vega Place’s Food Bank program.
