Community Place of Greater Rochester was RocWiki's Business of the Month for August 2012!

The Community Place of Greater Rochester, Inc. (CPGR) is a non-profit organization that ensures the delivery of cost-effective, high-quality developmental and social programs and services to residents in the northeast sector of Rochester, New York and throughout the greater Rochester area.

Their locations are in the Beechwood, Group 14621, and Marketview Heights neighborhoods.


To provide neighborhood-based programs, services, and resources which strengthen the Greater Rochester community, one person, one family at a time.


The leading neighborhood-based community center, providing a foundation for growth, empowerment and stability for those we serve.

The Community Place of Greater Rochester, Inc. (CPGR) is a nonprofit agency founded on the belief that everyone should enjoy the same health, economic, and social opportunities no matter who they are or where they live.


In 2001 the Community Place was formed from the merger of three settlement houses with long traditions of service to the Rochester community: Eastside Community Center; Genesee Settlement House; and Lewis Street Center. The roots of these agencies stretch back 100 years- the predecessor of Lewis Street Center, the Association for Practical Housekeeping, was formed in 1907.

The Community Place of Greater Rochester is proud to continue the legacy built by its former organizations and continue the settlement house movement in Rochester. We invite you to learn more about the programs and services we provide to the people of Rochester—from children and teenagers to families and seniors to the developmentally disabled.
