In the spring of 2010, the City of Colorado Springs was facing serious budget shortfalls, which created an uncertain future for four community centers. The city invited non-profit organizations to consider partnering with them to keep the community centers open. The Center for Strategic Ministry, a 501(c)(3) that serves as a supporting organization of Woodmen Valley Chapel, submitted a proposal to partner with the city and was awarded a management contract to operate the Westside Community Center. This management agreement is currently in place and the partnership has provided a valuable asset for the Westside neighborhood in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Volunteers from Woodmen Valley Chapel share God’s love as they provide their time and talent in meeting a variety of needs at the Center.
We dedicate this space to Dick Wolf, the man who helped craft the partnership and make the Community Center come to life.
The Westside Community Center is dedicated to loving and serving our Westside neighbors!
The mission of the Westside Community Center is to create community for friends of all ages. Grounded in the principle that everyone is worth of dignity and respect, the Center aims to offer a safe, loving, comfortable, and rewarding environment for everyone who comes through our doors.
