KHCC has provided cradle-to-career services for nearly 50 years out of a historic building at 3101 Kingsbridge Terrace.
Now KHCC needs our help. Major repairs ($4million!) are needed to the building, which is owned by the NYC Parks Department. If this work is not completed soon, KHCC and its much-needed services will be forced to leave Kingsbridge.
What can you do to help?
Contact elected officials:
- Request elected officials secure at least $2m more towards this project (and thank them for their support!). Urge NYC to repair its building in 2023!
- Amplify this message on social media to friends, family, colleagues, and anyone who is invested in the Bronx! Tag us: @khccnyc

Dear Honorable _______________,
The Kingsbridge Heights Community Center has served thousands in my neighborhood for nearly 50 years. Now KHCC needs our help. Major upgrades to the roof and façade of KHCC's building, which is owned by the NYC Parks Department, are needed. These repairs will at least cost $4 million!
If this work is not completed soon, KHCC and its much-needed services like Family and Child Care, After-School Programs, and Garden & Nutrition Programs will be forced to leave Kingsbridge.
I am writing to ask for your support of this extensive project. Will you please help keep the Kingsbridge Heights Community Center in my neighborhood?
