Breaking the cycle of poverty requires a place, a team and a path — and our community centers are where it all comes together. They’re our poverty-busting headquarters! With just the right combination of people and programs, they make helping kids and teens easier, more effective and just plain fun. Check out this infographic to find out how!
CI community centers represent the cornerstone of our vision that every child graduates from the program healthy, educated, employed and empowered to break the cycle of poverty. The programs and services available in the centers make the vision a reality.
2016 marks the 10th anniversary of our community center campaign. In that time, we've raised more than $11.7 MILLION and built or remodeled 32 CENTERS.
When we demolish or remodel an older center, we donate all usable materials to sponsored families.
Your contribution can bring another community center to life for as many as 5,000 kids.See where we're building next!
