LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Financial problems forced a longtime community center to close despite funding and last ditch efforts.

Up until Friday, the Presbyterian Community Center, located in Smoketown, had been scrambling to generate enough money to remain open.

The United Way had been assisting the center by advancing funding, but was unable to continue once the amount became unfeasible.

A telethon to help the center stay open on Friday, but did not raise enough money.

While the main center has been closed, the child development center will remain open.
