CRAM & TLC Capital Campaign Project:

The HUB (Harrisburg Uptown Building)


“Serving the City of Harrisburg with Diversity”

​CRAM has a new vision: creating a one-stop service center dedicated to meeting the needs of exoffenders and their families, veterans, and other underserved populations in the capitol city.

The HUB, the Harrisburg Uptown Building, represents that vision. Formerly the Hamilton Health Center located at 1821 Fulton Street, The HUB offers 18,000 square feet of opportunity.  Initial occupants and service providers will be CRAM; The L.E.A.D.E.R. Project; T.L.C. Construction & Renovations LLC; TLC Work-based Training Program, Inc.; and the Harrisburg Regional Diversity Coalition. Working together, we plan to expand services to greater Harrisburg and to build new residences on the 1.4 acres of vacant lots that once housed residential homes. Our rebuilding will create affordable properties in the immediate neighborhood. We believe that, when realized, this vision can be replicated throughout the state and the nation.


Since 2002, CRAM has received financial support from local foundations, federal grants, churches and many other donors. Our primary sponsor is former Governor George M. Leader’s family. Their Leader Family Foundation has made a five-year financial commitment, enabling us to offer programs in five Pennsylvania counties. To bring The HUB vision to fruition, we need your help.


Our initial goal is to raise $500,000: $250,000 to purchase the building and $250,000 to renovate and cover initial operations. We ask that you support us, and the city, through a donation or pledge to our Capital Campaign. There are

Your contribution to this historic project will be good for Harrisburg. Ex-offenders are often barred from affordable housing and life-sustaining employment because of their criminal records. Their families are impacted as well. Your support will have an enduring impact by meeting basic human needs and expanding employment options for hard-to-place individuals. Ultimately your contribution will help reduce crime and promote safety in the community.


For the Betterment of the Community,

Paralegal, Nonprofit Consultant & CEO/Founder of CRAM
