The Carver Academy and Cultural Civic Center
The Carver Academy and Cultural Civic Center has become the new heart of a part of San Antonio, Texas.

"ALEGRIA - The Salvation Army"
"ALEGRIA - The Salvation Army" was conceived as an oasis for families in crisis. Located on 1.6 acres in central Los Angeles, the project provides transitional and permanent affordable housing for large families affected by HIV/AIDS with a community childcare/family development center. The site is bounded by a quiet residential street to the north, apartment and commercial buildings to the east and west, and Sunset Boulevard, a major urban artery, to the south.
