TRIBUTE TO THE SHEER FAMILY in gratitude for their loving support. Whoever crossed their path felt their warmth of concern, compassion and caring.

"Not how did he die, but how did he live? Not what did he gain, but what did he give? These are the units to measure the worth of a man as a man, regardless of birth. Not, what was his church, nor what was his creed? But had he befriended those really in need? Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer, To bring back a smile, to banish a tear? Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say, But how many were sorry when he passed away."

Southwest Community Center VolunteersOur Mission...
We provide food, clothing, shelter, guidance, health and referral services to economically disadvantaged individuals and families, and assist and encourage those whom we serve to achieve self-sufficiency.

2014 Fundraising

For the first time in over 40 years, the Southwest Community Center faces the real possibility of reducing services to our clients. The need is increasing, but our contributions are only about half of last year. We need your help, and we need it now!
