In 1968, the Citizens' Crusade Against Poverty merged with several other organizations to form the non-profit Center for Community Change. It began operations by working with six community groups across the United States. The Center provides a wide range of assistance in program and organizational development for local community development groups in low-income communities, both urban and rural. In addition to its drive to promote self-sufficient community organizations in impoverished African-American, Latino, Native American and white communities, the Center also focuses national attention on issues dealing with human poverty and works to make government more responsive to the needs of the poor. The papers of the Center for Community Change consist of correspondence, memorandums, minutes, reports, clippings, press releases, and publications documenting the activities and concerns of the Center, the Citizens' Crusade Against Poverty, and the community groups with which it has been associated.
