History:
The Lussier Community Education Center has been operating for over 25 years and exists as a result of residents organizing in their neighborhood. Wexford Ridge Association for Tenants and Housing operated an all-volunteer neighborhood center from the early 1980's until the center became a part of the United Neighborhood Centers (UNC) in 1994. We became independent in 1999.
