Center of Life (COL) is a community-empowerment organization located in the greater Hazelwood neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA.

Our programs focus on music and arts, athletics, and education. Our vision is to empower and equip families to bring economic revitalization to their communities. Our mission is to provide families and youth with the life-skills, education, training, and resources necessary to be strong and to make their communities strong. We believe this is achieved through building sustainable partnerships locally, nationally, and internationally. At Center of Life we believe everything is about people.
