The mission of the Washington Neighborhood Center is to provide a safe and positive environment for youth and young adults and to assist them in developing healthy minds, bodies, and spirits. The Center’s staff and volunteers embrace these values and are committed to serving as positive role models and mentors.
The Washington Neighborhood Center is located in one of Sacramento’s oldest neighborhoods. The Center was originally founded by the Fremont Presbyterian Church as an outreach program in 1952. The Center has provided residents of the Alkali Flat and Washington neighborhoods a wide complement of programs and services for over 50 years. Offering programs in the arts, education, recreational activities, health, culture, and an overall emphasis on the development of youth, the Center and its programs have served as a refuge for many who reside in a troubled environment.
