Since 1946, Kingswood Community Center (KCC) has worked to empower the Riverside community to reach its full potential. That means standing by our neighbors through every phase of their lives.
Kingswood Community Center is here for you through all seasons of life – whether you’re looking for your next career move, or your child needs a physical for school, and even when disaster strikes, we are here for you.
Community Events: Check out what’s going on at Kingswood and the rest of The WRK Group!
Community Garden: Since 2015, our community garden has been managed by Planting to Feed, who ensures the produce is returned to the community. Produce from the garden supplies both community refrigerators.
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP): is a federal program that provides reimbursements for nutritious meals and snacks to eligible children and adults who are enrolled for care at participating childcare centers, day care homes, and adult day care centers.
Meals on Wheels: KCC partners with City Fare Meals on Wheels, a program of Saint Anthony’s Community Center, to provide nutritious meals to disabled persons and homebound seniors (ages 60+) who live in the area.
The WRK Group believes it is a basic human right to have regular access to nutritious food items. Unfortunately, we also know that our community is located in an area that doesn’t provide easy access to local grocery stores. As a result, we have partnered with Planting to Feed to fight hunger in the Riverside community. If you or your family need immediate food assistance, check out these resources:
No matter how well we prepare, a disaster can always strike. Most recently, during the fall of 2021, the Riverside and 11th Street community were devastated by Hurricane Ida. Residents experienced flood damage to their homes, cars, and personal belongings. Some families even required evacuation while some homes where condemned due to sustained damage. The WRK Group was able to distribute $600,000 to 216 flood victims.
When COVID-19 first hit Riverside in 2020, The WRK Group initiated the Riverside Relief Fund. Many families experienced job loss, disruptions to school schedules, and increasing negative impacts of the digital divide. The goal of this fund was to provide additional financial support as well as household resources to families within the community. The Riverside Relief Fund distributed $285,000 to 244 families. Additionally, over 400 Chromebooks were provided to students, so they’d be able to continue with their now, online coursework.
The WRK Group continues to be committed to assisting the Riverside community when disasters strike. We provide clothing, financial assistance, household needs, and more. If you need emergency support, please call (302) 764-9022 or email email@example.com for more information.
