Meet #HIPBeingNicole a student that has been through the After School program since the fourth grade. #WhyweHIP
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. HIP opened the Hazleton One Community Center, (#HOCC), nearly five years ago offering low cost or no cost educational, cultural and athletic opportunities to economically disadvantaged families within an atmosphere that fosters trust and respect.
