Mission: To revitalize communities in East Orange, Texas and improve the residents' quality of life.
Vision: A revitalized East Orange with vibrant, stable communities, and empowered, equipped residents.
Jackson Community Center (JCC) was founded in 2009 by Elizabeth Campbell, a retired banking professional and native of Orange, Texas. Ms. Campbell's deep concern for the economic plight of the underserved residents in the surrounding areas of her childhood home is what motivated her to return to Orange to rebuild these communities. After sharing her vision with other civic and community leaders, she decided to start an organization that would address the social and economic needs of the community. JCC serves as a catalyst for economic uplift and community change with an initial focus on the youth and plans for future support to other residents. Through mentoring, life skills training, and career development programs, JCC is improving the quality of life and future outlook for underserved residents.
