The Charles R. Kelly Community Center is one of five community centers in East Baton Rouge Parish that operates under the auspices of the City of Baton Rouge. Each center services a specific demographical area but all provide direction to accessing programs and services within the community. The Center's service area includes zip codes 70805 (some); 70811; 70812; 70818 (some) and 70739 (some).
The center serves as a nucleus site for information and referrals to the public and is committed to providing a continuum of programs, services, and activities that meet the needs of the community. The ability to network with other social service agencies, businesses, faith-based and non-profit organizations play a significant role in meeting the needs of the community.
The Charles R. Kelly Community Center is a member agency of the United Way Info Line, and the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
