Milwaukie Center Mission
To be a link to resources for older adults and their families – and a place for the community to gather, grow and contribute.
The Milwaukie Center opened in January 1980 as a resource to community members seeking stability, support, friendship and laughter. The Center offers a wide array of programs and services to meet the diverse needs of the community. In 2010 we proudly celebrated 30 years of providing possibilities for patrons of all ages.
Based on our myriad of recreational and social opportunities, services and resources, the Center is also a staple for older adults and their families in North Clackamas County. These patrons quickly realize we are not a stop at the end of a path – we are a connection to the beginning of the next exciting journey. We offer programs, events and services spanning weekdays, evenings and weekends.
The community not only utilizes the Center, they also support it. Annually, over 800 volunteers help make a difference providing more than 75,000 hours of service through the Milwaukie Center. Every one of our volunteers share in one unwavering goal – to provide our community members with unending opportunities to maintain and vastly improve their well-being.
