Winans Academy of Performing Arts To Become A Community Space
According to WXYZ-Detroit, after 25-years as the Winans Academy of Performing Arts, the school will become a community center by Life Remodeled. Life Remodeled is the same organization that changed the old Durfee Elementary/Middle School. The building is now the Durfee Innovation Center and is a community resource, job development center and works with the kids in the community with after school programs.
Chris Lambert with Life Remodeled says the vision for the Denby Neighborhood Alliance will contain the same – serving the community with “health and human services and workforce development.” Pastor Marvin Winans of Perfecting Church Detroit said that it was a “difficult decision, but it was necessary.”
Life Remodeled is hoping to have the new center opened in February.
