New Community Center Under Construction in Fort Bend County

New Community Center Under Construction in Fort Bend County

May 17 2023

A new community center is coming to Fort Bend County this fall. 

Located at the corner of Avenue E and 2nd Street in Rosenberg, the Rosenberg Community Center will be leased to the Boys and Girls Club to conduct their programming. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Houston is a youth development organization serving over 50,000 children and teens annually through after-school programs, mentorship, academic support, and leadership opportunities. The Boys and Girls Club aims to promote health and wellness, sports and recreation, character development, and positive youth outcomes. 

Throughout the year, the building will also be utilized for special events by neighboring Attack Poverty, an organization that aims to strengthen under-resourced communities like the North Rosenberg area through spiritual growth, education, revitalization, and basic needs. Attack Poverty organizes collaborative efforts with churches, local organizations, residents, and stakeholders in support of their community-based programs, which include in-school support, You Can Academy, GED prep, ESL classes, home repair and community projects.

According to architect James Knight, director of facilities for Fort Bend County, the community center will be 21,596 square feet and will feature a full-size gymnasium and lots of multi-purposes spaces. This project was made possible through the Fort Bend County 2020 Parks Bond, with a construction cost of $5,190,000. Substantial completion is set for mid-October this year.
