A Hub of Services, Connections, and Partnerships

The Community Center was created, in part, to be the place that brings people together where they’ll easily and conveniently have access to high value services.

Several of our partners will offer programs and services requiring a reasonable charge for participation. The Community Center plans to develop and offer programs as well, some of which will require an affordable fee to enroll.

Rather than requiring membership fees, individuals will be able to purchase a single-use pass or package of passes that grants them use of The Community Center amenities (e.g., swimming pool, courts, etc.) and room rentals.

We are committed to facilitating the potential of individuals, children, and families, improving health and well-being, and giving back. To that end, we strive to develop a program that offers equitable access for all through affordable programs and passes.

The Community Center is currently in the development phase of the pass program.
