Description


In 1995, community visionaries had the idea of restoring an 1876 former Victorian convent building and revitalizing it with programs to serve the local community. The Prescott-Joseph Center for Community Enhancement, Inc. (PJC) began offering programs in late 1995, including tutoring in the schools, programs, computer literacy classes, and a place to celebrate the arts. Today, we continue to uphold that vision and provide programs that strengthen the individual, stabilize families, and revitalize the community. Our core program areas are: Family Support Services, Art & Culture, Health & Wellness, Youth Development, Community Education, and Community Partnerships. We are also home to the Northern CA Breathmobile®.
