Non-profit Wins Bid For Terre Haute Community Center

CHANCES for Indiana Youth won the bid to operate the Booker T. Washington Community Center in Terre Haute after the only other bidder withdrew.

The Booker T. Washington Community Center in Terre Haute will soon have a new occupant. CHANCES for Indiana Youth won the bid to operate the former Hyte Center by default after the only other bidder – a start-up called Seed Dreams – withdrew earlier this week. Executive Director of CHANCES Brandon Halleck says the center will allow the agency to expand its services.

Halleck says he is unsure why Seed Dreams withdrew their bid. He says that CHANCES will soon transition into negotiations with the city parks and recreation board, and hopefully move into the building within a few months. Halleck says there is a lot of unrealized potential in the center.

CHANCES is a Terre Haute-based not-for-profit agency that was founded to stress drug and alcohol abuse prevention in youth and adults.
