The city of Mountain Home announced a new partnership with Care Center Ministries Friday at Hickory Park. The non-profit organization has agreed to adopt the park in downtown Mountain Home.
Mountain Home Mayor Hillrey Adams says the staff at Care Center approached him nearly two months ago about adopting Hickory Park and giving it some needed maintenance.
Hickory Park is the oldest city park in Mountain Home. It was established in 1954 by the Mountain Home Rotary Club whose members are pitching in with some of the cost of maintenance. During Friday's announcement, the Rotary Club donated $1,000 toward Care Center Ministries' project.
Mayor Adams says he is looking forward to the city's new partnership with Care Center and is hopeful it will be a long-term relationship.
Care Center Ministries Mountain Home is a privately funded 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed the transformation of its community. It began in 1986 in Rockwell, Texas, as a faith-based organization and has since grown to reach thousands of people, including those in Mountain Home.
