DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - The Ahiska Turkish American Community Center's goal is to create unity among diversity.
It's located at the former Bomberger Center on Dayton's east side.
A grand opening was held Friday night. Several city officials, as well as community leaders were on hand for the event; including Mayor Garry Leitzell and former Ohio Governor Bob Taft.
The community center is a non-profit organization serving not only Turkish refugees but also immigrants and under-privileged communities in Montgomery County.
The Turkish began settling in the US in 2005. At that time, there were only 6 Turkish families in Dayton. Now, there are more than 400 families.
The founder tells 2 News that this community center took about 7 months to renovate and he welcomes people of all backgrounds.
