About Allen Neighborhood Center

ANC serves as a dynamic hub where Lansing Eastside neighbors can access resources to improve their health and well-being; expand their capacity to seize job and entrepreneurial opportunities; create a strong sense of place, belonging, and community pride; and build a safe, sustainable, thriving neighborhood. ANC’s core services include:

  • Assisting neighbors in enrolling in healthcare coverage and accessing local housing resources (i.e., mortgage, first-time homeowner, and landlord- tenant assistance);
  • Hosting a weekly food pantry, farmer’s market, and ‘veggie box’ program; running a year-round urban farming/gardening facility; and supporting aspiring food entrepreneurs with access to commercial kitchens and related resources; and
  • Engaging neighbors through an annual door-to-door canvass, dedicated
    youth and senior programs, and a community newsletter.

ANC has experienced tremendous success in its 23-year history, including the soon- to-be-completed Allen Place development, which has brought apartments, a grocery, and clinic, additional commercial kitchens, and other amenities to ANC’s home in the heart of the Eastside.
