Who We Are
The Comstock Community Center started out as a teen center called “The Fish” in 1967 with the goal of giving teens something to do after school. Since 1969, when the center became a 501(c)3 non-profit, we have provided diverse services to residents of all ages in Comstock, Kalamazoo County and the surrounding communities. As the primary community resource to those living in Comstock, Galesburg, Climax-Scotts, Augusta and portions of Parchment and Richland, it is essential that we are able to be as efficient and effective as possible.
We also offer domestic and international travel to places such as London, Ireland, Hawaii, Cuba, Branson and NYC — just to name a few.
We pride ourselves in providing activities and services that enhance the lives of all citizens. We provide a broad range of services which support physical and mental health, social connection and creative expression. See the list to the right.
The Center also offers a range of programs that help Kalamazoo County families address critical needs. In addition to programs provided in-house, we work in collaboration with a variety of local agencies as a “host” for their valuable programs. Our collaborators include: Loaves and Fishes, AARP, Senior Services as well as AA/NA. These and other collaborations allow the Community Center to maximize its impact on the needs of local families.
We will also assist you and your family with gaining access to other community resources that support individuals and families who encounter unforeseen circumstances related to housing stability, food security and other disadvantaging circumstances.
