The new La Crescent Area Healthy Community Partnership office at 333 Main St., La Crescent, is now officially open for business.
The office houses Neighbors in Action and the general offices of the La Crescent Area Healthy Community Partnership (HCP) and various partner programs. It also soon will be used to serve the clients of the La Crescent Food Shelf, which also is part of HCP.
The office represents the first time HCP has had a central location to work out of. The property at 333 Main St. is owned by the city of La Crescent, which is leasing it to HCP rent free for at least one year.
“Everything has gone fantastically,” said Sandy Graves, the director of Neighbors in Action, about the move to the new office. “We’re thrilled with the community’s reception.”
Graves said HCP received donations of office furniture to assist with the move. Neighbors in Action used to be housed in the La Crescent-Hokah School District’s Community Education office.
An open house at 333 Main St. is planned for Thursday, June 14, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The event is being organized by HCP in conjunction with the La Crescent Chamber of Commerce.
Healthy Community Partnership is the parent organization of Neighbors in Action, the La Crescent Food Share program, the La Crescent Community Bike Shoppe and the Windy Ridge Ranch Therapeutic Riding Center, among others.
