A NETWORK OF STATE-OF-THE-ART FACILITIES SHARING A COMMON GOAL:
Providing children and families with opportunities to discover and develop their passions and talents within their own neighborhood.
Joan Kroc, wife of McDonald's founder Ray Kroc, began a legacy of hope when she entrusted The Salvation Army with $1.5 billion to build community centers all across the country. She dreamed of a network of "Kroc Centers", each providing opportunities in arts, education, and athletics for children, adults, and families in underserved communities.
These centers remove the financial, geographic, and social barriers typically standing in the way of people realizing their full potential. Additionally, Mrs. Kroc envisioned these Centers as bastions of peace, social justice, and service to others.
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
CREATED AS A RESPONSE TO EACH COMMUNITY'S NEEDS
Every Kroc Center offers classes, services and amenities that are unique to each individual community's needs.
CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL
Scholarships & reduced price memberships make it possible for everyone to attend life enriching classes and opportunities.
A Church and is a key component of each Center, providing a place for guests to worship and to spread the love of Jesus Christ.
