Crosby-Garfield Center

The Crosby-Garfield Center is a historically significant educational building in Southeast Raleigh, near Ligon Middle School.  Many residents visit the Center to learn about and access services from  Wake County, grassroots nonprofits, small businesses, faith-based organizations and the City of Raleigh.  It is a hub for Social and Economic Vitality efforts addressing “vulnerability factors” such as high poverty, high unemployment, low educational attainment, as well as “economic health factors” such as housing availability and affordability.
