WHAT SERVICES DO WE OFFER?

Lake Worth West Community Center promotes family unity and community safety through all of our services. We provide services for entire families, as well as referrals to health and human service agencies.

EARLY BEGINNINGS

We have many programs for babies, preschoolers and their families through BRIDGES which is funded by Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County. Our goals are to increase healthy births, prepare children for the start of school, and have children be at grade level by the time they reach third grade. Read more.

YOUTH AND TEENS

Our services for young people are designed to give them confidence to continue their education, break the cycle of poverty, and stay clear of distractions. We provide homework assistance, after-school programs, special events, and other activities, including our popular college prep club. Read more.

ADULTS

There are many services for adults, including a range of classes, clubs and other activities to become great parents, neighbors and contributors to their community. We provide

child birth classes, family educational workshops, and English language workshops to develop literacy skills. Read more.

OUR STORY

Many of our families go through similar experiences as Sandra Bueso. They come to our center in search of a welcoming community and a better understanding of how to raise their young children. They find both – and, in Sandra’s case, a lot more.
