DAWSON COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER

The Center consists of six buildings, totaling over 80,000 feet on a 5.5 acre lot. It includes a gymnasium, cafeteria, library and over 50 classrooms of varying sizes. There is also an adjacent playground.

The potential of this property is incredible. Just Do It Now welcomes your support and involvement in our efforts to make the Dawson Community Resource Center a successful asset to the community. We hope you will join us at one of our planning meetings.
