Workforce and child development hub on track to open in Abingdon this summer

May 03, 2024

Author: Susan Cameron

Travis Staton donned a hard hat Thursday and proudly showed off some of the features — from exploration labs to a cafe — of the first-of-its-kind Regional Workforce and Child Development Hub taking shape in Abingdon.

Construction of the $25.5 million project started last July, and it is on schedule and about 85% complete, according to Staton, who is president and CEO of EO, formerly the program arm of United Way of Southwest Virginia.

The 87,000-square-foot facility, once a Kmart store in a shopping center off Interstate 81’s Exit 17, is currently a busy construction zone teeming with workers and heavy equipment. Construction is expected to be completed in July with the opening set for August.
