The Carver Community Center was
founded at the Craig Street location in
Schenectady, NY in 1969 as part of the Civil
Rights Movement inspired George Washington
Carver Leagues. The first of its kind, Carver
incubated and established a wealth of public
resources in the City of Schenectady that are
still present today including but not limited to
Hometown Health, Substance Abuse & Recovery
Programming and SCAP. In 2013, Carver
Community Center closed down leaving a void in
the Hamilton Hill Neighborhood.
We—a group of community residents,
collectively decided that we would not just
watch another thing come and go in our
neighborhood. To date our collective efforts have raised
$345,000 in seed money to get this project
started. We have come so far and are
steps away from our Miracle!
Help us create the path!

"Our young people need to feel connected to
their community, to become invested and to feel valued."
“The time to reclaim our community is
yesterday. It is not just for our children, but out
children’s children. This is legacy in action.
“My hope is that if nothing else happens, my
hope is that you know that this generation is
out here—-fighting for social justice, fighting
for change, fighting for quality of life, fighting
for equity, fighting for health, fighting to heal
ourselves, fighting for our lives and we are
asking for help, but we are not giving up. Our
ancestor’s prayers and dreams are not lost on
us. ‘They are our convictions.’”
Rosa Rivera Director of Miracle on Craig Street
