The Friendly Center

The Friendly Center, with its wide-ranging potential, can become the hub of transformative community development programs. Our goals include the following:

Before and After School Programs

These programs aim to bridge the education gap among underprivileged children, providing them with quality education support, and instilling in them a love for lifelong learning.

Community Engagement Hub

We envision the Friendly Center as the go-to place for community meetings, social activities, cultural events, and community-driven initiatives, thus strengthening social ties and community resilience.

Empowerment Programs

Offering vocational training, digital literacy programs, and job search assistance to empower our community members, particularly the youth and adults seeking employment.

Health and Wellness Initiatives

Partnering with regional health organizations to host regular health check-ups, fitness activities, and wellness programs that contribute to the overall well-being of our community members.

Resource Center

Acting as a critical point of contact for community members seeking assistance, from food and clothing drives to emergency relief services and referral services.
