"At The Center of the Grier Heights Community"

In October 2015 after a year of renovations, the new Grier Heights Community Center opened in the historic Billingsville School house on Leroy Street, in the heart of the Grier Heights neighborhood. An old Rosenwald school built in 1927 specifically to educate African-American children in Charlotte, the school was originally just a frame structure, but the community rallied around fish fries to raise $500, and local residents laid the bricks you see today.

Now, nearly 100 years later, the Community Center is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and hosts all sorts of events, classes, programs, and gatherings for the residents of Grier Heights. It's a "no-judgment zone" where resources, connections, and friendly faces are in abundance as the staff and those who meet there try to empower neighbors to achieve their goals and connect with one another.

So stop by. Come right in. Find what you're looking for or find someone that can point you in the right direction. We're "at the center of the Grier Heights community," and we're here to help.
