Community Resource Center

The Three Spinners Community Resource Center provides refugees, immigrants, newcomers, and all members of the community with support and advocacy services when they are faced with the difficult task of starting their lives over in a new country and culture.

Our Services

The Community Resource Center is part of the YMCA’s New American Welcome Centers effort to build a more inclusive and welcoming community. We welcome all people without regard to nationality, religion, or legal status. We offer many goods and services such as:

Getting Here

Get Directions

Open Mon/Wed/Fri, 11–2

Bike racks are available outside the main entrance. There are also several bus lines that stop nearby.

Get Involved

We are in need of volunteers to work at the Resource Center, providing a welcoming face and offering their skills to help prepare newcomers for life in our community.

We ask that volunteers commit to at least one three hour shift a week for the entire summer. Please note any special training you are able to offer such as computer software, sewing, language practice, etc. We would not be able to do any of this without your amazing support and generosity and we are so grateful for the enthusiasm and compassion of our community!
