The Virginia Edwards Community Center
We here at the Benton Harbor Housing Commission/Virginia Edwards Community center have come together to try and build a place where parents can bring their children and know that they will be in a safe environment. Parents and children themselves can rest assure that there will be someone at the center to always guide, inspire, motivate, strengthen, teach, educate, and direct our youth in the right direction. Since being apart of the family we have partnered with different organization such as Socrates Mentor and Tutoring, Andrews University Computer Training Program, Band of Brethren, Michigan Works, Connect Up (CPC) Fall Grant Program, YMCA Achievers Program, Curious Kids Museum and the Benton Harbor Middle Schools, Hull and Fairplain.
The Facility contains a state of the art gym, a computer lab, a spacious community room with up to date kitchen appliances and a state of the art Recording Studio.
On the following pages you will see the glimpse of the activities going on at the Virginia Edwards Community Center. The Community Center is available by contract for social activities.
