As a gathering place for art, education, recreation and community building, the Clarkston Community Center works to meet the many needs that are related to the city’s demographics, density, and low income status. In fact, apartments make up 80% of housing in Clarkston. Through a strategic focus on community building, Clarkston Community Center programming works to bring together refugee and non-refugee populations.
