It will help with building a new $20-million, 3-story, 52,000 square foot facility with additional parking.  The new facility will include office space, classrooms, a computer lab, conference rooms, a gymnasium and a kitchen.  The Malone Center received a $1.5 million grant and has raised another $2.5 million so far.

Demolition of the current Malone Center off of 20th and “U” Streets is set to start next spring, with the project slated to be done by the end of 2025.
