The United Neighbors of Fitchburg was founded in 1968 as the Cleghorn Neighborhood Center – a community-based, grassroots organization dedicated to addressing the inequities of poverty. The Center originally served the Cleghorn neighborhood’s French-Canadian immigrants. Today, the UNF operates the Cleghorn Neighborhood Center and the Cleghorn Youth Center, and continues to work with the immigrant community —now, predominantly Latino – and the entire city of Fitchburg to develop leaders and fight for social justice. The neighborhood center provides leadership and community organizing opportunities; adult education (ESL, GED prep in Spanish, citizenship classes, computer training); direct services (referrals, food pantry, translation); cultural events, and meets additional community needs. The youth center offers a safe after-school environment for ages 5-18, promoting healthy decision-making and academic success through tutoring, leadership development, and fun and recreational opportunities. The UNF operates through grant funding, donations and volunteer efforts.
