The Blythe Oldfield neighborhood recently celebrated the renovation of a playground at the Blythe Family Support Center and relocation of Early Head Start classrooms with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The ceremony included Mayor Tom Rowland, Councilman Bill Estes and Councilman Charlie McKenzie along with officials from the Family Resource Agency and Head Start.

"We are celebrating the grand re-opening of our Early Head Start modular that we moved from one end of the campus to the other," said James Andersen, chief executive officer of the Family Resource Agency. "Also the playground is new. The fencing is new. This is just our way of letting the community know we are here serving the children."

"The city is proud to have been a partner in this project that means so much to so many in one of Cleveland's oldest neighborhoods," said Mayor Rowland.

"The Family Resource Agency is such an important community partner," said Councilman Estes. "It brings together key services for this neighborhood." The neighborhood playground and Head Start are among many agencies that serve families and individuals from one location, the Blythe Family Support Center, he said.

People from many of the agencies housed at the center took part in the ribbon cutting ceremony.

"This place is an important resource in many ways to a lot of people," Councilman McKenzie said.

"We are able to continue to provide high quality child care for pregnant moms and children six weeks to age three," said Sherronda Thompson, Head Start/Early Head Start/ Pre-Kindergarten director. "It's no cost to the families. We provide free diapers, breakfast and lunch. Those families transition into our Head Start and Pre-K. So at this site we serve children from birth to age five."
