Outreach – Center for Community Resources hosted a ribbon cutting for their new office in downtown Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.  The open house hosted several legislators from the region, including Vince Sperduto from Senator Marty Flynn’s office, Christa Mecadon form Congressman Matt Cartwright’s office, Luzerne County Council member Brian Thornton, and Mike Slusser from the City of Wilkes-Barre.

Located at 138 South Main Street, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701, this is the sister location to Outreach’s Seventh Avenue Center in Scranton. The office opened for service in October 2023 to better serve participants in Luzerne County.  Since opening, the S. Main Street office has provided evidence-based programs, including The Incredible Years®, Parents as Teachers®, and SafeCare® Augmented. These programs focus on family stability – a central pillar in Outreach’s mission.  You can learn more about our programs by clicking here.

Bridget and her team would love to meet you, give you a tour of the new office space, and explain the evidence-based family programs available in Luzerne County.
