The group from 2000 continued leadership. This group identified many needs: They needed income to pay bills, and they needed members and the support of the community. They needed to become a Non-Profit 501(c3) organization. They begin to identify many upgrades to the Center: Electrical, floors, restrooms, windows and window coverings, painting interior and exterior. The upgrade fund totaled $570.00.
During the 2nd year the president of the Center, Bob Neilsen Jr. stepped down due to illness. Walter Wilson was elected president in May 2002.
