Phipps Neighborhoods, provides children, youth and families in low-income neighborhoods the opportunities they need to thrive through comprehensive education and career programs, and access to community services.


Phipps Neighborhoods provides children and teens with a safe, structured environment where they can do homework, participate in activities that enrich learning, and enjoy a fun, social experience outside of school hours. We operate after-school programs that supplement the school curriculum and encourage creativity, confidence, teamwork, and communication skills. All programs provide children with a healthy snack and/or hot meal. Many locations also operate on weekends and during school holidays.
