Creating unity among  Ahiska Meskhetian Turks.

DAYTON, Ohio  - The Ahiska Turkish American Community Center's goal is to create unity among Ahiska Meskhetian Turks.

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 Ahiska Meskhetian Turks refugees but also immigrants and under-privileged communities in Montgomery County.

The Ahiska Meskhetian Turks began settling in the US in 2005.  At that time, there were only 6 Ahiska 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.
