About the Center
The Neighborhood Center (located at 8201 10th Ave S) is in the old brick fire house that was built in the 1920’s. The Neighborhood Center is an active building bursting at the seams with dedicated volunteers who are working to improve our community and give our neighbors a helping hand. In 2013 we clocked over 14 thousand volunteer hours! We have over one thousand neighbors visiting the Center every week.
If you would like to reserve the Neighborhood Center for a community event, Contact Us for information. We are not currently renting the Neighborhood Center for personal uses but will rent to organizations.

I, Hao, am 75-years-old, Vietnamese, in the USA 17 months after 7 years in a communist jail. I lived alone, felt isolated and wanted to go home. Then, I learned about the South Park Senior Program. Now, I come to the Center twice a week for exercise and dinners plus breakfasts five days a week. I practice English, teach Vietnamese, eat nutritious food, share my feelings and learn about others. Now, I want to stay and bring my wife to join me so we can build a new life in the South Park area. — To read Hao’s complete story, click here
