The Jackson Center has built community for years in Northside and Pine Knolls neighborhoods

The Marian Cheek Jackson Center is a non-profit dedicated to building community in Chapel Hill's Northside and Pine Knolls neighborhoods. The organization has worked alongside UNC students since its beginning and UNC recently gave the organization a $3 million loan to continue its work in the community.  “I remember growing up with neighbors that knew each other, sharing joys and sorrows, knowing who lived around you, which brought safety because you knew who your neighbors were,” said Kathy Atwater, the center’s community advocacy specialist. “The Jackson Center has become a part of the community, not just someone outside looking in."
