History

We have over 85 years of history serving those in the York community, and we're still going strong! Founded in 1931, our association takes its name from hero Crispus Attucks, a freed slave and African American who was among the first to die in the American Revolution at the Boston Massacre. Since its foundation as a place for underprivileged children  to gather for educational and physical activities, we have grown into a multipurpose center offering a range of services for people of all ages, fulfilling its commitment to those in need from all backgrounds and walks of life.
