In 2021, after years of planning and fundraising, the Center opened a 21,803 sq. ft. expansion. The addition includes a high school regulation gym, lobby/reception area, program and activities rooms, weight room with locker rooms, storage space, staff offices, conference room, and a concession area. This building is home to over a hundred programs.
Lincoln Community Center takes pride in being an affordable facility for adults and a free facility to children. Shane believes, “Lincoln Community Center is needed as much as any other organization in the City of Troy. It provides hope for so many underprivileged youth and is utilized by all walks of life, ages young to old. We are excited about getting started with an expansion plan to provide more space and opportunity for the community.”
Today, the Center continues to reach a record number of members and youth that utilize our building daily. We now offer more programs than ever before and are utilizing both the original building, recently renamed the John and Caroline Spencer Building, and the new expansion. Our programs have grown tremendously in numbers over the years, and we hope to continue adding new programs for the community to take part in.
Without the Lincoln Community Center, where would everyone go?
