The Center for New North Carolinians operates three community centers in apartment complexes and mobile home communities with high concentrations of immigrants and refugees: Glen Haven, Oakwood Forest and Legacy Crossing. Focused on education, health access, employment and case management, programs and services are offered through a collaborative model of AmeriCorps members, interns, volunteers and partner agencies to serve over 400 immigrants and refugees in the greater Greensboro area. Over 450 UNCG students volunteer with the CNNC each year serving these newcomers. Your generous gift impacts and transforms the lives of immigrants and refugees in our community and helps cover the cost of rent, utilities, AmeriCorps members, and program supplies.
The Center for Housing and Community Studies (CHCS) is a community-engaged, applied research institution specializing in geospatial research and multi-modal data collection and mixed-method analysis, used to develop community-informed solutions to social problems around housing and neighborhoods for governments, nonprofits, foundations and institutions of higher education. We also incorporate grounded solutions to provide education and outreach promoting individual through systems-level change. Our mission is to support, collaborate with, and empower community and institutional partners by providing data, information, evaluation, and assessment. Our vision is to eliminate barriers and disparities in safe, affordable, fair, and healthy housing and communities.
The Center for Youth, Family, and Community Partnerships (CYFCP), established in 1996, encourages interdisciplinary research and utilizes the resources of the University to address social concerns in the community. Your gift will help foster community partnerships that bridge research, practice, and policy to advance the health and wellbeing of individuals and families across the lifespan.
