About Johnson Park Center
JCTOD Outreach, Inc. dba Johnson Park Center (JPC) is a faith-based non-profit organization that promotes positive change, revitalization, and community development in the heart of Cornhill, the poorest neighborhood in the City of Utica, New York. We provide emergency and supportive housing for women, children, and families, as well as a range of community-based support services in the areas of nutrition, recreation, mentoring, and advocacy. Our programs build hope and empowerment, and help individuals become self-sufficient, contributing members of the community.
Our Charity Bib Mission
What our charity will do with the donations raised through the Boilermaker Charity Bib Program:
JPC will use the charity funds to support our Drop-In Youth Center. The program operates all year. In the summer time, we encourage the children to engage in sport activities to promote healthy living and positive social interaction with their peers. For example, kickball is offered to the children, culminating in a Kickball Tournament during JPC's Week of Celebration. Children learn how to compete in a healthy, safe way and experience fun, physical events in a drug and alcohol-free environment. Additionally, children attending the Youth Center are provided with a free, hot meal. This helps to improve the overall well-being of the children, many of whom come from low income households and often do not have stable, supportive home lives.
