In 2008, World of Life Church began rehabbing an abandon building at the corner of Capitol Street and Rose Street. The rehabilitation took almost a year and they tried to restore the building to fit with its architectural detail of the past. The building was built in 1946 and has been several businesses over the years including a bank. At some point the second story was covered by large white panels and the only visible windows were on the first floor.
That all changed with the rehabilitation of the building. Now there are 10 large windows on the second floor allowing for lots of light into the space. The building has been transformed in to a community outreach center called, “The Life Poindexter.” It has been in operation for three years and they assist students at Poindexter Elementary and George Elementary. Over the years they have been able to provide these schools with smart boards, computers, and internet access. They also are able to give families at these schools meals for the weekend.
The Poindexter Life Center is located at 1133 West Capitol Street.
