"Our mission is to identify the needs of the community and to serve those needs through social and educational programs".
The Willie Mae Stokes Community Center strives to provide a safe, accessible
community space for activities and programs that meet community needs. To raise
consciousness through education, art, music, and culture. To advance the full
inclusion of all persons in the community.
Our nonprofit Community Center has one purpose: to be the place where education and caring happens. We are staffed almost entirely by volunteers and are 100% committed to delivering enjoyable, meaningful programs and services to all residents.
The Community Center will be the hub that provides programs and services geared towards educating, training, and helping residents of all ages. We provide multiple levels of comprehensive, integrated, and accessible services which support the youth and families of the Town of Micanopy and Alachua County.
Rooted in faith, and the community we believe that education is an integral part of a strong community. We support the youth in our rural communities who are historically underrepresented in hopes of cultivating their academic and leadership talents so that they can gain full access to educational opportunities and reach their full potential.
