A year ago the RLP staff was working out of their homes, hunkering down at dining room tables and in make shift office spaces in their bedrooms. Then in April, we all moved into our office on Polk St, finally able to meet and collaborate together with ease. Nine months later we have expanded yet again! Now a majority of our staff is operating out of our new community center, The PLACE, on Plains Boulevard. We haven’t unpacked all of the boxes yet, but the space is slowly taking shape. There’s a large gathering room that is slowly being filled with comfy seating, a TV featuring international programing, a computer lab with free wifi for our refugee neighbors, and places to sit down and get to know someone new. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered their time and energy to helping us get moved in. Our office on Polk will continue to operate as the RLP business office. We will be hosting an open house to show off the new space, so stay tuned to email and social media for that date!
