The Mission of the West Medford Community Center is to connect the diverse people of West Medford and the wider Mystic River Valley region through social, educational, cultural, health and recreational activities. For over sixty years the West Medford Community Center has provided opportunities for individuals and families to gather, learn from each other, grow and celebrate together.
This is what makes West Medford Community Center unique, the belief we belong to each other and that we are stronger, healthier, and more complete when we can come together. While programs and events for children, teens, and adults continue to fill our calendar, the magic lies not in our programs but in our people.
Our goal is to support this idea of “community” — that intangible quality where people know they belong and that others have their interest at heart. To do this, we provide opportunities for folks from different generations, races, ethnic backgrounds, religions, economic status, or any other arbitrary divisions to come together, learn from each other, and experience this idea of “community.”
While the demographics of Medford are changing, the need to feel a part of a community remains.
