I serve with a non-profit organization geared toward empowering, educating and supporting refugee women as they navigate pregnancy and childbirth in the US. The Clarkston Community Center has been a tremendous gift to us and the women we serve. The CCC provides a wonderful space for us to host classes serving refugee women. They are friendly, reliable and go out of their way for us. They are truly committed to the Clarkston community and reflect its diversity. I highly recommend becoming involved with the many activities and resources provided through the CCC!!

CCC is a unique place for cultures to intersect. As I walk down the hall to a synagogue choir rehearsal I pass a large room and hear powerful African drumming . I see people coming in from the ecologically advanced designed community garden and see children playing and older adults in conversation. It is a true blessing to the community. The summer market is also a collection of multicultural experiences and goods.
