Building community one event at a time.
Bay View Community Center
There is something for everyone at Bay View Community Center. Our programs have three goals:

Develop the individual
Provide support
Strengthen families
The Bay View Community Center is a non-for-profit organization that serves individuals and families in southeastern Wisconsin. The Bay View Community Center provides a variety of fun and exciting programs. These include classes for children, activities for seniors, family events, and health enrichment programs for adults. Special programs, like the Emergency Food and Infant Formula Pantry, give a helping hand to those who could occasionally use it. As a non-profit organization, the Center’s success is truly a community effort. Volunteers, donors, and caring individuals are at the heart of the Bay View Community Center.

The Center believes in the power each individual has to stretch beyond his or her own expectations. We strive to provide information to individuals and families that can help them make strong and informed decisions.

Strong decisions lead to greater change, and that’s what makes the Bay View Community Center thrive. By strengthening our community’s greatest resource—its people—we help make the community a better place to live. We provide a place for individuals, families, and groups to gather and belong. In turn, they strengthen the community with a greater sense of pride and their support
