The Village Summit is a “Micro-Community Center”
A previously foreclosed house, transformed into a valuable resource for the neighborhood. Our mission is focused on helping children in the community and building bonds between community members through volunteerism and personal service.
Our goal is improving the quality of life through education, social consciousness, and access to information and other valued resources.
People without transportation can access support that they could not normally reach. Neighbors in the area are excited about the idea of having a resource where children can get help with homework and tutoring within walking distance.
