Community

The South Park Information and Resource Center (SPIARC), founded in 2006, has evolved rapidly in the last few years. It has gone from a small resource center to a multi-lingual, multi-cultural mainstay for the South Park community. Now, SPIARC is the primary multi-lingual resource for the South Park community and its diverse population. SPIARC serves as a neighborhood hub where people can connect with one another and obtain information vital to being self-sufficient in work, health and life. Specifically, SPIARC serves more than 800 new clients each year providing a meeting and celebration space for community members, connection and referrals to employment, legal services, affordable housing programs, food banks, shelters, affordable healthcare services, and much, much more.
