On December 10, Fort Bend County Commissioners Court approved an Occupancy Agreement between Fort Bend County and Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels & Much Much More.
The Bud O’Shieles Community Center has been home to Fort Bend Seniors for 15 years. This new agreement will allow for renovations of the community center that will include the expansion of the current kitchen and the addition of an administrative building.
The occupancy agreement is a 1.5MM commitment to Fort Bend County to be fulfilled by Fort Bend Seniors by 2023.
“This new agreement will allow the Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels to have a place to call their own and enable Fort Bend Seniors to provide so many new services to our cherished generation in Fort Bend County. The renovations and new construction will eventually allow for new programs, such as: Computer Classes, Exercise Room, Nutrition Education, Crafts and Immediate Service on Hot Meals and Frozen Meals.” Manuela Arroyos, CEO Fort Bend Seniors.
“This agreement would not have happen without the dedication of the Fort Bend Seniors’ Board and the continued collaborative effort made by the Fort Bend County Commissioners Court with Commissioner Morrison championing the effort. Commissioner Morrison’s vision and dedication to this project was the keystone to its success”, said David Vasquez, Chairman of the Board, Fort Bend Seniors.
