In 2008, HealthSpark Foundation noticed a lack of options for quality, competitively priced office and meeting facilities for nonprofits in the community . As a direct response to filling this capacity needs amongst the area’s health and human services community, the Community Partners Center was established.
During its opening year, then Governor Ed Rendell and the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Senate all honored the Center in recognition of being the first nonprofit center in Pennsylvania.
The facility is designed to encourage collaboration to support the efforts of local nonprofits in providing a high caliber of services and benefits.
