Several years ago we introduced the Hazleton Integration Project (#HIP) as a catalyst for positive change in our area. We believed that whatever differences exist between the people who now call Hazleton home are far outweighed by the common sense of humanity that binds us together.


Thank You for all your Support!

We had a very successful Holiday Line-Up.  


CTC: Together We Can

HIP's Playground Grand Opening!

On Thursday June 15 the Hazleton One Community Center had its Grand opening for the Playground that will serve as a recreational facility for all the children involved in our center. The playground was donated by Hazleton Creek Properties LLC, who also donated a complete MAC Computer lab to our center. Our very own Joe Maddon and Frank DeAndrea received and inagurated the playground. Thank you, Mr. William Rinaldi for your support to our cause and center!
