Part of the century-old settlement house movement, the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center was organized in 1971 to promote a positive quality of life for residents of the Clintonville-Beechwold area. We invite you to learn more about our programs and opportunities for involvement. CRC is the “go to” agency for services, resources, and advocacy in Clintonville and Beechwold.
The CRC is a United Way Member Agency and a member of the Columbus Federation of Settlements.
Our services include:
*Family and Neighborhood Services
CRC distributes over two tons of food and toiletries each week to economically stressed individuals and families through the Food Pantry—that’s over 6,000 meals per month. Other services include emergency material assistance (clothing, housing, healthcare) as well as linkages and referrals to other agencies and supportive services.
*Children and Youth Services
CRC’s Kids’ Club, a no-cost after-school and summer care program for elementary and middle school youth, is host to a daily average of 60 children Monday through Friday during the school year and the summer months. An all-volunteer tutoring program provides special interventions for students in need of extra help. Summer programming includes special events, team sports and recreation, cultural field trips and academic enrichment opportunities.
*Senior Supportive Services
All CRC Senior Supportive Services are designed to maintain seniors safely and independently in their own homes, to guard against displacement, and to protect the elderly from social isolation. CRC provides a wide range of services for area seniors including:
- Social outings to destinations such as the Columbus Museum of Art or Franklin Park Conservatory
- Weekly grocery trips
- Transportation for medical appointments
- Monthly Breakfast Club and Coffee Klatch
- Home visits and personal assistance
- Health-related or safety-related home maintenance and repairs
