The Jonathan Street Community Outreach Center History
In 1988 the Parson Family had a dream! This was in response to the social unrest and crime impacting the lives of residents living in the Jonathan Street neighborhoods of Hagerstown. How do we help to reduce crime rates? How do we impact the lives of people in need? How do we help our civic leaders clean-up neighborhoods that were fast creating another “distressed” city in the United States? They created the Jonathan Street Community Outreach Center with one main focus – to serve the people with an outreach program to socially impact the lives of underserved, impoverished and “distressed” people living in the local communities.
