Community House (CCH) is a private non-profit settlement
house that has maintained a "quiet tradition of caring"
since 1935. Today, CCH offers a variety of programs designed
to strengthen family, neighborhood and community life within
an identified service area that includes most of the
southeast quadrant of the county. CCH is the only settlement
house within this area.
Central Community House had operated from a house located at
1251 Bryden Road. Neither the main facility nor the child
daycare program, located several blocks away in the
Blackburn Recreation Center could satisfy program
requirements for space. As a multi-service neighborhood
center, CCH needed additional space for childcare, senior
activities, youth and family programs, support groups and
With this vision in mind, Central Community House launched a
Capital Campaign to raise $2.8 million to construct a 16,500
square foot building at 1150 East Main Street. To date, CCH
received commitments totaling over $2.7 million. Turner
Construction Special Projects was chosen as the contractor
and the new facility was completed in April 2005.
A new, larger facility has enabled CCH to increase its daily
after school program capacity by 40% and the child daycare
program by 45% and to bring all of programs and
administrative offices under one roof. CCH also has enough
space to add childcare for infants and toddlers. The new
building also allows CCH to expand our employment services
and trainings and contains a computer lab for both youth and
As part of this effort, the Compact has developed a
security camera program on E. Main Street, connecting
Pan-Tilt-Zoom security cameras from 5 off-site partner
locations to a common image viewing and recording station.
Streaming camera images of E. Main Street are available 24
hours a day, from any computer with Internet access.
