00:29 Download November 8th, 2022

Amanda August, Executive Director of Jefferson Street Center discussed the new community hub.  She spoke of its history, beginning as a daycare center in the mid-‘80s.  The board continued after its closing, looking to create cooperation between the neighborhood residents, associations and businesses.  Today Jefferson Street Center is a physical manifestation of that mission, working with its host, Hanover Presbyterian Church, it looks to help local organizations, small businesses and youth as a type of incubator, bringing them together to solve the community’s issues.  Working from a Blueprint Community needs and concerns study, they hope to work on issues such as after-school engagement, safe housing and crime.   She discussed the success of Open Streets, closing streets to vehicles and creating a community fair and open house for local groups and businesses.  Their hope is that the building will offer opportunities for idea sharing and cooperation, a safe place for after-school activities, fostering community engagement and social justice.   She points to their successful incubator pilot program, working with local small non-profit busineses who used the space for employee training and development, growing their business and offering emplyment opportunities for young locals, both their mission goals.
