Originally housed in a church basement, the centre was in jeopardy of closing or at best moving from Weston because the space they were leasing was being sold and no other community or commercial space was available.
With the help of the City of Winnipeg, who agreed to lease the old Weston Fire hall to the group and a grant from The Winnipeg Foundation, they were still short of the projected renovation costs. Without a reserve fund the chance of obtaining a commercial loan to complete the financial plan was unlikely.
Jubilee Fund who saw the potential benefits for the children and staff, was happy to provide a loan guarantee to the group. Now years later, the fire hall that once protected the residence of the area now provides a safe, affordable service to the parents and children of Weston.
