The old Newbern Elementary School building is gradually coming closer to becoming Pulaski County’s location for a new adult care center.
The project for Pulaski Adult Day Service and Fall Prevention Center (PADS & FPC) has been in the works for over five years. It started as a grassroots campaign, with the intent to ease the hardships of family caregivers in the community.
