Officials from the Booker T. Washington Community Center are working to brighten their future.

Center officials have applied for non-profit status from the Internal Revenue Service. Right now only the second level of the building can be used. The city will soon remove asbestos from the first floor of the building and add a roof.

The center is now funded by the City of Staunton and additional grants.

"What we would like to do is solicit funds from the community and various organization in the community," said B.T.W. Chairperson Walter Brown, "That would be tax deductible for them and that way we can provide additional services that the city can not provide here at this location."

The center should know the status of its non-profit application with the IRS within 90 days.
