DETROIT (AP) -- A cultural and community center financially backed by the Ford Motor Company Fund has opened in Detroit.
The Detroit News reports that Ford Motor Co. Executive Chairman Bill Ford and Mayor Dave Bing on Friday unveiled the Ford Resource and Engagement Center.
The center is located in an unused building on the city's southwest side. The Mexicantown Mercado opened in 2007 as part of a two-building complex but the fledgling businesses within it closed.
The facility is a key part of a $10 million initiative Ford announced in December to benefit Detroit and several nonprofit groups. The center's offerings will include job and language training, performing and fine arts classes and a food bank.
