New community center in Parkchester to help residents start their own businesses
(07/24/04) PARKCHESTER - A Bronx health care organization hopes to give the employment rate in the borough a shot in the arm. The Soundview Health Care Network is celebrating the grand opening of the Parkchester Community Support Center.
The center will offer workshops and provide information for Bronx residents looking to start their own businesses. The grand opening comes at a time when members of the borough president's office report that The Bronx's unemployment rate is high, and the average salary is low.
Officials say the new classes promise to help many Bronx residents make changes in their lives. The new center is located on the corner of McGraw and Pugsley avenues.
