Albany - - An Albany church is helping adults get a second chance at an education.

Greater 2nd Mt. Olive Church is renovating a duplex here at the former Boyett Village military housing complex.

They're turning it into a new Adult Literacy Center to help more people in the community in need of basic academic skills. 

"Because of the number of people in this area that we had committed we would service to help them get their GED or their high school diploma, we're moving it here to Jordan's Crossing so they will have the convenience of not walking as far or just walking," says Pastor Lorenzo Heard.

The new center is expected to be up and running by October.

It will open three nights a week to accommodate the schedule of working adults. The services are free to the public.
