A Safe Place To Learn And Grow


Each of our local community centers offer youth programs for children ages 6-12 to help neighborhood families.  We provide quality after-school activities in a safe and respectful environment where children can build on their unique strengths. We help them improve their school grades, change unhealthy social behaviors and develop life skills that set them up for success. Programs are also available at most locations for teens.

The West Side Community Center is home to  The Salvation Army Learning Center, providing daycare for children age 6 months through pre-school.
