The Carver Community Center was founded in Schenectady, NY in 1969. During its time, Carver incubated and established many resources in the city of Schenectady that are still present today. In 2013, Carver Community Center closed down leaving a void in the Hamilton Hill Neighborhood.
In August of 2015 the Carver Community Center went up for auction for the first time since it had closed its doors in 2013 for $150,000. We--a group of community activists, also residents of Hamilton Hill, collectively decided that we would not just watch another thing come and go in our neighborhood.
