Construction underway for Little Havana Expansion Project - 06/01/2016
Our corporate office located at 700 SW 8th Street, Miami, FL (Little Havana)  is in the middle of a new home right next door.  We are looking forward to a new facility which will be located right next door to our Little Havana facility. The new facility will house the seniors currently attending the Little Havana Center and will have ample room for more seniors once completed. This facility also has a Day Care Center which will also increase it's capacity once the new center is open. More to come.
