For four decades, the historic district of downtown Dover has suffered decay, underdevelopment, impoverishment, and despair. After consultation with various stakeholders, a group of Dover citizens founded the People’s Community Center to harness local knowledge and organize local partners and allies to launch programs to address downtown’s most critical problems.
The Center for Community Health seeks to ameliorate these disparities, and give residents of Dover an equal chance at life. We work with an OBGYN and a public health Nurse Practitioner who have been providing services to low income downtown residents for years, but without a permanent clinic site.
Local stakeholders have donated over 1000 square feet of downtown space for renovation. We now seek both funding and community-based organizational partners to join us in this life-saving work.
