The Community Place of Greater Rochester is a neighborhood based organization that meets the needs of people where they live. We are a trusted resource that helps all generations to achieve the dreams they have for themselves and their community.
The Community Place has been an integral part of the Rochester community for over 100 years when its earliest predecessor was established. We help families meet their basic needs, promote health, wellness and education, enhance personal and social development, improve literacy, and build community. 9,000 individuals annually benefit from programs and services at CPGR.
Born from the merger of the Lewis Street Center, Genesee Settlement House and Eastside Community Center; The Community Place serves residents of Northeast Rochester. We deliver a wide range of social, developmental, and educational programs delivered through our facilities in the northeast sector of the city of Rochester (NY) and throughout the greater Rochester area. We are a leading neighborhood-based community center, providing a foundation for growth, empowerment and stability for those we serve.
The Community Place is proud to continue the legacy built by its former organizations and continue the settlement house movement in Rochester. We invite you to learn more about the programs and services we provide to the people of Rochester—from children and teenagers to families and seniors to individuals with developmentally disabilities.
