Our Mission

The Carver Community Center is a partnership initiative in Cumberland, Maryland established to supplement existing services and to foster systemic change in the greater Allegany County community.  Poverty, chronic unemployment, and a workforce  that is inadequately trained for the information-age economy are key economic drivers fostering change in the area.

Carver Community Center strives to:

bulletSupport removal of barriers through education and training
bulletWork within the community to fill voids in existing services for needy area residents
bulletEmpower residents to strengthen families and achieve economic self-sufficiency
bulletContribute to the rejuvenation of the community and surrounding neighborhoods

Citizen interest in this project spans twenty or more years.  Since 1997, community and government agencies, local business, and residents collaborated to launch the Center.
