  • Mission:
  • Mission
    Influenced by a rich African American heritage, the Ann Arbor Community Center is a catalyst for transformation within the city and its greater community. With a primary focus on youth, adults and families, the Ann Arbor Community Center provides programs and services that promote self-reliance, social and economic well being, diversity and community involvement.

    The Ann Arbor Community Center: Changing Lives—Transforming Communities.

  • History:
  • In 1923, the Dunbar Center was established to accommodate African American men who came to Ann Arbor to work on roads and university buildings, but had no place to stay. During the 40's and the 50's the Dunbar Center promoted civic, cultural, and recreational interests of the African American community. In the late 50's the Center recognized that changing times called for a change in its core mission and services.

    The current facility, located at 625 North Main Street, was designed by Alden Dow and constructed in 1959, with the support of philanthropist, Margaret Towsley. The name was changed to the Ann Arbor Community Center, Inc. (AACC). Many activities took place at the AACC and much time was spent reaching out to troubled youth in the community. A former YM-YWCA camp, Camp Takona, was purchased in 1972 and used for youth and other outdoor activities (later, re-named Camp Hill).

    Today, the AACC is a community service agency organized around five priority areas: 1. Youth Programs; 2. Senior Services; 3. Emergency Assistance; 4. Women's Health Education; and 5. Domestic Violence Prevention & Education. New programs include Youth Workforce Development and Domestic Violence Education in Faith-based Organizations.

    The AACC continues to provide recreational, social and cultural activities for people of all ages. We rent office, event and meeting space to area individuals, groups and organizations. We appreciate support from the City of Ann Arbor, Washtenaw United Way, Washtenaw County, the University of Michigan, corporate partners, other organizations and hundreds of individuals and families.

    Over the past year, the AACC has moved from being an 87 year Membership organization (exclusionary model) to a Directorship, or Stakeholder organization. We believe that the broad based, inclusionary nature of the Stakeholder model is important for future growth and continued success. Accordingly, By-laws and other organizational documents have been revised. We look forward to the benefits of this evolution.
