Our Work: At BakerRipley (formerly Neighborhood Centers), we connect families and individuals to opportunity so they can achieve the life they’ve imagined. Through our unique approach to community engagement, we work side-by-side with community leaders and residents to discover their strengths, craft a collective vision, and design programs and services that create greater financial stability, educational attainment, and community engagement. In other words, we help our neighbors to earn, learn, and belong.
How We Do It: BakerRipley believes that everyone has something to contribute and we work to build on these strengths. We provide a breadth of programs and services that evolve over time based on the needs and aspirations of the communities and neighbors we serve.
• Community centers • Immigration and civic engagement • Workforce initiatives • Senior services and caregiving support • Free tax preparation • Language classes and literacy programs • Elementary and middle charter schools • Early childhood education • Wellness initiatives • Veterans and childcare financial support
Building strong communities by serving our neighbors is the reason why we exist and it’s something that hasn’t changed since 1907.
