Sarah Dixon Innovation Center (Grocery Co-op / 4800 Block)
A Project of P.O.O.R.L.A.W. and GH-CARED
At one time part of the main commercial strip of Hazelwood, most of the 4800 block of Second Avenue is currently vacant. The GH-CARED coalition of community organizations, businesses, churches, and residents, POORLAW in cooperation with Praise Deliverance Church, is seeking to develop a two-story building on the 4800 block of Second Avenue, and the building’s first floor would be a 20,000-square-foot grocery store. Plans for the second floor will be informed by further community input. Possibilities include a credit union, job training center, and a daycare, to be run as community- or employee-owned cooperatives.

Through the GH-CARED coalition of community organizations, businesses, churches, and residents, POORLAW in cooperation with Praise Deliverance Church, seeks to establish a “one-stop shop” resource center to provide administrative offices, training space and serve as an incubator of opportunity for other small non-profit organizations.
