The Lucille W. Gorham Intergenerational Community Center was started in 2007 as a joint venture between collaborative partnership between the community of West Greenville, East Carolina University, the City of Greenville, Pitt Community College and other grass-roots organizations.
The center supplies what is lacking in the community by the way of job training and after-school programs. It is viewed as a national model for community- based, university and municipal partnerships. The community impact has been phenomenal and the lives of children and families have been positively impacted by the multifaceted programs that are offered.
The center which operates 95% on grant funding has served well over 18,000 people since its inception and currently has 110 youth enrolled in the after-school program.
