For the next 50 years, and beyond.
We are a catalyst for positive change in a neighborhood with a rich history of community organizing. Our community members have come to expect great things from us. And we strive every day to continue the work of letting them lead us to make the most significant large impact in our city.
For us, meeting people where they are means listening to what they have to tell us. In hearing you out, we create programming that addresses your most pressing concerns—not only the immediate crises at hand but also the longstanding effects of inequality.
Poverty is a cycle. In order to break it, you need support that is personalized to your individual needs, be they physical or mental. This is why we take an approach to social services that emphasizes the whole person. Among our many social programs, we take pride in the fact that we can offer help in a variety of ways. From finding transportation and educating your family, to scheduling you a visit with a personal coach, we aim to be not only the center our community needs but also the one it deserves.
