Looking to the future
What is The Brockway Center?
When The CARE Center purchased the property, we knew it only as a private residence. In February of 2019, The CARE Center learned of the facility’s previous use by the Oklahoma City Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs. When we discovered the significance of the building, known as The Brockway Center, we began to look for ways to work with the women to help honor their history and support their current work. We have reached an agreement with the women and in March 2019, signed a memorandum of understanding that will allow their organization to have free meeting space in the new facility and honor their important work inside and outside of the new building. The women of The Brockway Center have withdrawn all objections to demolition, and we welcome the opportunity to partner with such an important organization who share’s a similar mission of providing support for the community’s most vulnerable citizens.
