In 1996, in response the high crime rate and gang activity in the neighborhood, the Crown Heights Community Resource Center was opened in a rented house on Division Street. That site was managed by the Police Department and staffed by a Community Assistant and Public Safety Officer. It housed a number of non-profit agencies and activities, including Partners For Healthy Neighborhoods, Community Housing Works, and Hope and Power. The Santa Margarita Family YMCA also provided additional services to neighborhood youth and families at the historic Americanization School building across the street. Management of the Resource Centers transitioned to the Neighborhood Services Department and in July of 2001 the Crown Heights Resource Center moved to the present site at the city- owned Americanization School building at 1210 Division Street.

Currently, multiple agencies, organizations, and volunteers work in collaboration with the City of Oceanside to address the different needs and problems faced by the residents of this neighborhood, empowering them to participate in making their neighborhood a better place to live. Monthly Community Meetings of the Crown Heights Residents Group are held on the third Wednesday each month and are attended by Oceanside Police Department’s Neighborhood Policing Team Officers and Neighborhood Services staff. Along with partnering agency staff and guest presenters. 

Current programs at the site include a Positive Youth Development After School Program for youth (middle school and high school), Cal-Fresh and Medi-Cal application assistance, reading club for children for Pre-K to 2nd grade, and a computer lab.
