The mission of the Fenway Community Center is to serve as a gathering place to share information, deliver programs, and provide services that enrich the lives of all Fenway residents.
We firmly believe in the importance of supporting those who live in Fenway and, in line with our mission, our stated values are: collaboration, community, enrichment, equity, innovation, and sustainability.
Fenway Community Center is a member driven organization. This means the direction of our programming is based directly from feedback from the community. We may not be able to implement every idea, but the feedback is crucial and helps drive us forward. Please share your ideas via email@example.com! We’re always listening.
