“We are try­ing to reach out to the com­mu­nity to bring new peo­ple into the Cen­ter and let them know we are here,” Steele said.

The open house is for every­one in the com­mu­ni­ties the Cen­ter serves, she pointed out. These in­clude Gravette, Sul­phur Springs, De­catur, Hi­wasse and Maysville.
