After plans to create the Olson Community Engagement Center were announced in June, the new center is inching closer to reality as construction began in October.

When it is all said and done, the new Olson Community Engagement Center at 445 E. 1st Street, will house six organizations including the Fremont Area United Way, Rebuilding Together, Fremont Family Coalition, Sixpence, Volunteer Connection and the Metropolitan Community College Employability Academy Center.
