With grants, fundraising, and corporate/individual giving last year, The Neighborhood Center continued to serve over 100 youth ages 4-18 with programming including a Pre-K class, after school programs and summer programming. The guiding principles of all its youth programming are to: provide a safe haven, promote positive life choices, and promote and strengthen community relationships.
OUR STAFF & VOLUNTEERS
The Neighborhood Center operates with an employed staff of seven - an Executive Director, two (2) Elementary Program Coordinators, a Pre-K Teacher and two (2) assistants, a Teens Coordinator and an assistant - and a host of committed volunteers. Volunteers come from area colleges, local church and civic groups, and Lehigh Valley businesses and corporations; in addition, concerned parents and community members also volunteer.
All staff and volunteers are required to complete a child protection/abuse form and complete a criminal record check. Since all programs and activities are provided with the help of volunteers, The Neighborhood Center wants to ensure the safety of its children.
St. Luke’s Evangelical Lutheran Church bought Parks Seafood Restaurant in 1998. After renovations, the building was re-opened as St. Luke’s Neighborhood Center and programs began to be offered.
On March 29th of 2002, The Neighborhood Center
(formerly St. Luke's Neighborhood Center) was incorporated
as a non-profit corporation and we received an advanced ruling for our 501© (3).
