Hazleton One Community Center

Hazleton One Community Center will be a physical environment within the city of Hazleton, Pennsylvania, conducive to creating opportunities for economically challenged children to participate in a variety of no-cost or low-cost educational, cultural and athletic activities.

The Hazleton Integration Project will operate a community center that will engage our children in wholesome activities while fostering trust and respect among all of our region’s ethnic cultures.

mpb-exteriorIn December 2012, we purchased the former Most Precious Blood School at Fourth and Seybert Streets in Hazleton, to be the home for the Hazleton One Community Center.
