GREATER MAPLE VALLEY COMMUNITY CENTER PROGRAMS
A nonprofit agency, we are the largest provider of human service programming in the area. Activities and support services are provided both on and off site and the scope of programming is intergenerational - serving families, teens, and senior adults.The GMVCC service area includes Maple Valley, Hobart, Ravensdale and unincorporated King County within the Tahoma school district (90 square miles).
FOUR PILLARS OF SERVICE
The Greater Maple Valley Community Center regularly examines our role in the community to see how we can most successfully meet those human service needs unmet by other organizations. A result of this process is that we continuously update and refine our service delivery model. As a board, we strive to better communicate to the public the value that we bring to the community. This effort has led us to develop the "Four Pillars of Service" at the Community Center.
PREVENTION & INTERVENTION
Providing programs, activities, and/or guidance that seek to deter specific or predictable problems. Protect the current state of well-being and/or promote desired outcomes or behaviors.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Helping people to be active participants in managing their health and lifestyle. Forcusing on the mental, physical, emotional, and social components of everyday life to promote independent living and aging in place.
Serving as the hub, or gathering place, for the varied and diverse elements of our local society. Providing support for groups to develop kinship, positive growth and neighborhoods.
EMERGENCY RESOURCE CENTER
We are dedicated to assisting our community to prepare for natural and/or man-made emergencies. While we can offer shelter, warmth and sustenance to those who need us the most in the event of a disaster, we belive that being prepared at home and work is a safer and more efficient strategy.
