Who we
are

EDUCATING CHILDREN, SUPPORTING FAMILIES, AND INSTILLING HOPE SINCE 1937.

The Sara Holbrook Community Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to create enriching life experiences for young people - enabling them to safely learn, grow, and explore new possibilities. SHCC serves students and families from Chittenden County, with a large percentage of participants coming from the North End of Burlington. 

Since 1937, the Center has continued to adapt its programs to changing needs. With those changing needs, we have expanded to annually serve 1300 individuals, including immigrant and refugee populations, who attend the Center's events and use the Center's programs including after-school care for elementary school students, elementary school-age summer camp, teen programs, youth adventure camp, an outreach program, English Enrichment Program for youth, and food & essential assistance for the greater Burlington community.
