"If you can make a number of small changes, that's really how lives are changed, I think the community center is probably instrumental in that"Jim Nichols, community resident--

From Our Grassroots Beginnings...
Started as Your All Resident Association (YARA) in 1978, residents of the Kennedy Heights neighborhood came together with the hope of fostering a greater sense of community and creating more activities for neighborhood children. By 1986, the neighborhood association had secured funding, built a community center and incorporated as a non-profit agency. The community center began operating various programs that improved the quality of life of the community residents. Now, second and third additions have been added to the building to meet expanding program needs.  The center offers an expanding list of programs and services to the Madison community.
Partners and Supporters
