To establish a community center that serves and embraces all ages providing a safe place where kids can get tutoring, mentoring, sports clinics, and open gyms. Teens can find a safe place to connect and share interests. Seniors can find a place of belonging with fun activities and social engagement, and families can come together for various classes and activities.
This will be a place where everyone is welcome, everyone can belong, and everyone can be a part of a safe environment where people’s spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical lives will thrive. Whatever reason they choose to come, we believe they will experience a loving, safe place to find community!
