As part of the century-old settlement house movement, CRC is a community-based social services agency that brings people together to help individuals and families build upon their strengths.
For 50 years, CRC has been making a difference in the lives of neighbors. Many lives have been improved or sustained by the services CRC provides. We promote self-sufficiency while respecting individual worth, rights, and dignity. Thus creating a greater quality of life for everyone throughout the community.
The Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center was founded in 1971 by a group of Clintonville residents who evaluated the needs of the Clintonville/Beechwold area and realized that neighbors could help neighbors. They discovered current and pending social problems on one hand, and concern and resources on the other.
CRC was originally supported by a contribution from the congregation of North Broadway United Methodist Church, and other area churches quickly added their support. CRC's Choice Food Pantry has grown tremendously as the staff and leadership continue to develop programs to serve community needs.
CRC is part of the Columbus Federation of Settlements and a member agency of the United Way of Central Ohio. As part of the century-old settlement house movement, CRC is a community-based social services agency that brings people together to help individuals and families build upon their strengths.
