To provide neighborhood-based programs, services, and resources which strengthen the Greater Rochester community, one person, one family at a time.
The leading neighborhood-based community center, providing a foundation for growth, empowerment and stability for those we serve.
We deliver a wide range of social, developmental, and educational programs delivered through our facilities in the northeast sector of the city of Rochester (NY) and throughout the greater Rochester area.
In 2001, The Community Place was formed from the merger of three settlement houses with long traditions of service to the Rochester community: Eastside Community Center; Genesee Settlement House; and Lewis Street Center. The roots of these agencies stretch back 100 years- the predecessor of Lewis Street Center, the Association for Practical Housekeeping, was formed in 1907.
The Community Place of Greater Rochester is proud to continue the legacy built by its former organizations and continue the settlement house movement in Rochester. We invite you to learn more about the programs and services we provide to the people of Rochester—from children and teenagers to families and seniors to the developmentally disabled.
