From now on, any juvenile or adult seeking assistance from the Alternative Program will need to go to the Carrie P. Meek Comprehensive Center. Last Friday, the home of the inmate assistance program, located at 151 NW 60th Street in Miami, held a dedication ceremony to unveil the new name of the facility, honoring retired Congresswoman Carrie P. Meek. Though restrained to her wheelchair due to recent medical challenges, Meek was still able to express how humbled she was by the outpouring of love and appreciation for her years of service to her community. Friends of Meek also paused to sing Happy Birthday to the Congresswoman who will be 87 on April 29th.
