A Letter from Executive Director April Thomas-Jones
During these uncertain times we are faced with many difficult decisions. As you know the Old Pine Community Center is a place for all people, and we provide many services to the community, including but not limited to Youth, Seniors, Homeless, and Community Rentals. We are remaining steadfast in providing services and support to our most at-risk populations, and we are in constant communication with state and local officials in regards to all other services we provide. Please know that the health and safety of our staff, all community members, and partners are paramount, and we are working diligently every day to accommodate our community, while staying abreast of the most current advice and ensuring we are adhering to all CDC and other government recommendations.
We understand that this uncertainty can be frustrating and again we appreciate your patience. Please know we are making decisions and plans that are often changed due to the ever-changing guidance in regards to COVID-19, but we promise to keep you as up to date and as informed as possible. Again we ask for your continued patience as we work to navigate these unchartered waters.
All the Best,

What our visitors say about our center
Thank you so much! The last care package helped us very very much! May God Bless.Mike E.
Thank you and the Volunteers and staff at Old Pine Community Center for helping us homeless on Sundays with a wonderful breakfast and very courteous people who serve breakfast. Coffee server this Sunday 10/8/2017 was wonderful and the others also. Thank you.Edward S.
As a mother, OPCC has given me more than I could have asked for; a safe place for my kiddos to go. A safe place that not only nurtures their minds, but shows them care and compassion as well. A place that, in fact, they don’t ever want to leave! First time in their young lives that they are disappointed to see me when I come to collect them. They would stay all day and all night if they could!Cynthia G.
Thank You Old Pine Community Center for helping to make such a positive experience for my son Quadir. With all of your patience, creativity and love for my son, Quadir has achieved a lot this school year. He started off on the right foot by having the OPCC as his after school program.The Pryor Family
I am part of a group that needed a space for a party, and we were happy with this place from the beginning to end. it was a huge success, and much of the credit goes to the people at OPCC.Ramona J.
We just had our baby shower here and it was a really great experience working with Old Pine. Kate at the front desk and the maintenance staff who were working the Sunday we were there were really helpful.Rachel U.
My friends recently held their wedding reception here, and what a great space it was! There was a lot of room to mingle and plenty of space for food, a bar and dancing.Kristine D.
