Central Community House turns 75!

This year marks Central Community House’s 75th Anniversary. Since 1936 Central Community House has maintained a “quiet tradition of caring” on the Near East side of Columbus. Like the neighborhood which surrounds it, Central Community House has changed and grown over the past 75 years. Through it all, Central has remained an anchor for neighborhood activities and resources. Today, Central Community House acts as a neighborhood hub, providing services such as child care, tax assistance, activities for seniors, after school programs, and so much more. Most importantly, Central continues to be a place where neighbors can gather, meet, and support each other in a safe and welcoming environment.

To celebrate its 75th Anniversary, Central Community House will be hosting several neighborhood events throughout the year. As part of the celebration, we are inviting community members to share memories or stories about Central Community House with us. If you’ve been a neighbor, a summer camper, a staff member, or had any other part in the work and life of this organization and would like to share a story please submit it to We will be compiling and sharing these stories throughout the year at various different events.

Stay tuned for information about upcoming events honoring Central Community House’s 75th Anniversary!
