Our History

YEARS 1999-2001 Spartanburg School District Four created The Greater Woodruff Area Planning Committee with community leaders to identify needs in parenting, childcare, youth and senior services. In 2001, the Mary Black Foundation awarded funds to the District to open the Woodruff Community Center.

YEARS 2002-2007 The Center offered homework assistance, after school and summer enrichment programs to students with low test scores. In 2007, the Center became a non-profit 501c3 to broaden its outreach in the district area.

YEARS 2008-2016 The Center moved to a new location in downtown Woodruff at 116 South Main Street with room to provide events and meetings for various groups sponsoring health fairs and public seminars. The Center has added to its services workshops, job training, youth programs, children's summer programs and the Gift-in-Kind.

2017- present The Center facility was recently renovated in support of a new, expanded vision of service to our community. Outside resources are being gathered, shared and "multiplied" with local ministries and service organizations.
