The Center was founded by the Reverend Doctor Jack E. McClendon and began operating in 1980 as a mission of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church. In 2004 the McClendon Center became a separate 501(c)(3) organization. Our mission is to prepare people recovering from mental illness to improve their quality of life.
