The Westbrook Community Center is a multi-purpose facility serving residents of Westbrook, ME, and surrounding communities by providing opportunities for social, recreational and basic needs to be met. Through collaboration, partnering and working together, we offer an array of community services that address the needs of persons young and old and help them find and access resources that enrich their lives. Our goal is to promote self-sufficiency and foster health and well-being.
Developement of the Westbrook Community Center has been a community effort. Ideas and involvement came from all different groups and individuals. What simply needed to be done was to unlock the doors, and in came the creativity and activities. The center is home to many diverse and interesting groups who rely largely on volunteers to make their programs happen. If you walk through the center on a Tuesday, you’ll see the Food Pantry open, the thrift store open and at least one recreational activity and other program running at the same time. On Wednesdays, a gathering of friends and neighbors create beautiful works of art in the Fiber Arts Room and are always welcoming to others wanting to join in. Walk out back around the center and see the harvests of squash, tomatoes and beans in our community garden, inspired and realized by a wonderful group of volunteers.
Westbrook is rich in it’s ability to come together and create a sense of community, even in these challenging times.
Please take advantage of the Westbrook Community Center. Not every community is able to offer it’s residents a pool, gym, thrift store, food pantry, fitness & dance studio, cafe & culinary center and a space for gathering. We hope to see you at our various events and thank you for your patronage and support.
