St. Raymond Community Outreach (SRCO) is a non-sectarian community based organization that was created to help people build better lives in the Parkchester neighborhood of the east Bronx. After decades in decline, newcomers from around the world have settled in this area, bringing a new vibrancy, along with a host of challenges and opportunities. We are moving forward with the development of the neighborhood’s first community center, The PARCC. When completed, the center will offer a broad range of education and recreation services. Our current programs comprised of a Community Initiative and Comprehensive After School Program, (CAP) are well timed to grow into The PARCC.
