Bringing the Community Together

When you support Carver Center you’re supporting not a building but a community of people who are trying to improve the lives of thousands of Peorians. What started in 1918 as a place for children who needed focus and direction has become a beacon in the heart of Peoria helping to uplift people of all ages and backgrounds.
