New Care1st Avondale Resource Center
The New Care1st Avondale Resource center is beginning to take shape after the groundbreaking in December 2019. The new facility, scheduled to be completed in January 2021, will boast over 25,000 square feet and house the Care1st Avondale Resource Center, currently located at 328 W. Western Ave., the Avondale Senior Center and the Avondale Neighborhood & Family Services Department which is currently located at 1007 S. 3rd. Street.
The updated center will include meeting rooms, senior dining facilities, offices and space for providers of various programs that support residents of the community. There will be landscaped grounds and plenty of parking for patrons.
In 2019, Avondale City Council voted to name the complex after former Mayor, Marie Lopez Rogers who dedicated her life to social work before running for Avondale City Council. Her tenure included two terms as mayor until her retirement in 2014.
