What is the Center for Community Growth?
The Center for Community Growth (The Center) is a re-emergence of a membership organization created in the 1990's to unite people in Indiana County, Pennsylvania who believe in progressive democratic principles, non-violence, and civic engagement and want to work collaboratively on those issues locally, regionally and globally.
The Center fosters collaborations between organizations through educational events, such as our recent Building Change in Indiana conference this past spring which brought together 22 social service and advocacy organizations to identify ways to work together, and add value to their work in the community through collaborative projects. This summer The Center is launching a non-partisan voter education initiative throughout Indiana County through food banks.
Our mission is to build support for community minded individuals and organizations in and around Indiana County who are actively working to improve the livelihoods of residents by addressing issues of social, economic, racial, and environmental justice. The Center actively engages people of diverse philosophies, faiths, and backgrounds to work together to form a more fair, equitable, and sustainable community.
