Our mission is to help people discover and develop their capacities, gain access to resources and engage in civic activity that advance the well-being of the entire community.
Great neighborhoods include many things: quality housing, friendly neighbors, a clean and well cared-for environment, good schools and low crime, among others. But the foundation is always the same: people who care.
The truth is struggling neighborhoods won’t improve because of a federal grant or outside resource alone. Lasting change only occurs when people take ownership of their community and their own lives.
For over 30 years, the Center for Great Neighborhoods of Covington, has been dedicated to helping people improve their lives by improving the quality of urban neighborhoods. Strong neighborhoods provide stability, social supports and a web of vital resources that allow families and individuals to thrive.
The Center equips residents with the tools and resources they need to create healthy, thriving neighborhoods. "helping residents improve their lives as they improve their community"
