Garden Justice Legal Initiative (GJLI)


Central Club for Boys & Girls

The Central Club for Boys & Girls has stewarded community gardens and open space in Grey’s Ferry since the 1940s. In spite of its rich neighborhood history, Central Club recently faced losing its land to sheriff’s sale. GJLI secured a delay of the sheriff’s sale, giving the club time to file for the necessary tax exemptions. After helping the group obtain nonprofit real estate tax exemptions, the GJLI successfully advocated to remove over thirty years of back taxes owed by previous delinquent owners.
