The Hilltop Action Coalition is the "Communications Anchor" for the Hilltop Area community. Our Volunteer network of Neighborhood Leaders, Community Block Programs, Informational Outreach, and Advocacy Work are at the heart of the community building work HAC is famous for. 

        Hilltop's Hot Spots

​   A generous Hilltop Resident received their COVID-19 check and decided to use the money as a donation to spark internet availability for those not connected.

    Partnering with Peace Community Center, Hilltop Hot Spots is providing internet use in family homes for student's school work. Do you need a Hot Spot for your youth? Please email
   This generous Hilltopper partnered with Hilltop Action Coalition to provide internet usage to the Hilltop Neighborhood through public internet access areas.
   If you would like to make a donation, please click on the "Donate Here PayPal Giving Fund" button at the top of this webpage. Thank you for helping to bridge the gap by providing access to the internet.
