Our Mission

The UNF’s mission is to advance the future of Fitchburg by promoting and developing the Latino and immigrant populations as cultural and economic strengths, and future leaders of the city.

The United Neighbors of Fitchburg was founded in 1968 as the Cleghorn Neighborhood Center – a community-based, grassroots organization dedicated to addressing the inequities of poverty. The Center originally served the Cleghorn neighborhood’s French-Canadian immigrants. Today, the UNF operates the Cleghorn Neighborhood Center and the Cleghorn Youth Center, and continues to work with the immigrant community —now, predominantly Latino – and the entire city of Fitchburg to develop leaders and fight for social justice. The neighborhood center provides leadership and community organizing opportunities; adult education (ESL, GED prep in Spanish, citizenship classes, computer training); direct services (referrals, food pantry, translation); cultural events, and meets additional community needs. The youth center offers a safe after-school environment for ages 5-18, promoting healthy decision-making and academic success through tutoring, leadership development, and fun and recreational opportunities. The UNF operates through grant funding, donations, and volunteer efforts. 

The United Neighbors of Fitchburg completed its new strategic plan in June 2016, developing guiding principles and focus areas to implement its goals. The UNF will heavily focus on building partnerships to bring expertise and resources to the Latino and immigrant community, using a racial justice lens to implement all of its work. In addition, it will focus on leadership, culture & education, and economic strength of Latinos and immigrants to be the future leaders of Fitchburg
