When & Where
Ella Hill Hutch Community Center
More than 37% of Western Addition residents live in poverty and 80% of our participants qualify for free and reduced lunch. Studies suggest that children in low income families suffer at a significantly higher rate than there counterparts from obesity, due in part to decreased opportunities to play and exercise safely outside; their caregivers are less likely to have access to healthy food options, or able to afford fresh healthy foods. Therefore the Ella Hill Hutch Community Center’s mission is to provide programs that support our residents through mental, physical and financial resources in order to build a healthier community.
The Ella Hill Hutch Community Center has been successful in achieving our mission by facilitating a direct partnership of services by the West Side Community members. Twice a week, they provide counseling and therapy, host physical fitness classes for the youth and community at large. Zumba, tennis, and a variety of exercise programs are available at no or reduced cost. and we make the space available for Narcotics Anonymous, community meetings and events.
For nearly seven years the Ella Hill Hutch Community Center has hosted the annual Western Addition Backpack Giveaway, giving away thousands of backpacks filled with school supplies. The center has also hosted health fairs and workshops providing health resources to hundreds of residents.
