U.B. Kinsey Educational & Community Center honors Ulysses Bradshaw Kinsey, a longtime Palm Beach County educator, activist, and member of Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church. The Center stands as a tribute to Mr. Kinsey and his rich legacy is located in the Historic Northwest Community of West Palm Beach, one of the city’s most disadvantaged, under-served neighborhoods.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, families that reside in high poverty, high crime and underserved communities are affected by the social determinants which manifest in a wide range of health and quality-of-life outcomes.
Thanks to the generosity of the Jacobs Family Foundation, U.B. Kinsey Educational & Community Center was built to acknowledge and respond to the needs of the Northwest Community and surrounding neighborhoods by combining – under one roof – a comprehensive source of programs and services intended to serve the underserved. The overarching goal of the center targets the exposures which contribute to the desolation which grips the entire community.
The Center contains seven (7) classrooms, conference room, multi-purpose room to host meetings and community events, and a fully equipped kitchen. It features a lighted dome intended to symbolize a beacon of hope – a beacon of light shining in this underprivileged – high-poverty neighborhood.
