The Salvation Army Center for Worship and Service Community Center provides programs to the community to improve education outcomes for both children and families, to encourage healthy living for individuals and to develop strong families.  This new facility offers a place for community members to come together in accordance with The Salvation Army mission to serve without discrimination.  Programs include our after-school program offering 1:1 homework help, literacy and math enrichment, computer lab with educational options, a state of the art gymnasium,  a fully outfitted recreation room including ping pong, pool table, foosball and community space.

The hard truth is that families in crisis have children in crisis.  The Emerging Youth process frees children to experience social mobility in a global community.
Emerging Youth is a partnership between The Salvation Army and students in Sarasota County which utilizes The Salvation Army’s 150 year experience in character building programs to increase the social mobility of children by providing them with resources for stable living, positive incentives for enhanced learning and opportunities for experiential leading.  The Salvation Army, in collaboration with other Sarasota organizations, provides incentives to encourage school engagement, reflect positive behavior and invest in their own future.

 Our community center provides a wide variety of activities for persons of every age group.  Contact us at 364-8846 for the upcoming schedule.
