A little over a week after Lt. Debra Clayton was shot and killed, members of a local Polk County church are working to preserve her legacy.

According to Fox News, the Winning Souls for the Kingdom Church in Auburndale, where Clayton frequently spent time mentoring the ministry's young people, will be dedicating their yet-to-be-constructed youth center to the fallen Orlando officer.

Before her death, Clayton was a part of the planning process for the new facility. Now, as a tribute to her, the center will be named the Debra Clayton Youth Dream Center.

The ministry is planning for the building to include a basketball court, classrooms and eventually a swimming pool.

Church officials say the goal for the center is to provide a safe place for kids that will continue Clayton's legacy of mentoring and shaping the lives of children.

The ministry is currently still in the fundraising process for the project.
