The center's board of directors has a plan to offer just the essential services and pay down their debt.
Executive Director Linda Heatley is exicted that the center will remain open. "The latest is we are back in business. We're going forward. We've done a proposed nine month budget that shows us as a very viable organization.
The Bend Community Center will continue with its senior meals program, its "Feed the Hungry" program and Becca's Closet.
Back in September, leaders at the Bend Community Center thought they'd have to close because of financial problems, but increased community support and a whittling down of its services help keep them afloat.
