Community Center

Brunswick's population is projected to nearly double by the end of the decade. We have outgrown our town's limited space for community-based organizations to meet and operate.

We need a hub - a center for our youth and our seniors. We need a home for our artists and our makers. We need a resource for those needing a helping hand and for those already striding ahead.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

New Hope Community Partnership's primary goal is to open and operate a community center in Brunswick, Maryland to serve the needs of the community.

Additionally, we aim to offer programs, activities and services including:

-A Computer Lab will give residents the opportunity to create resumes, search for jobs, apply for services, take online classes and learn computer skills.
-Community health nurse to provide health education, smoking cessation programs, drug abuse intervention, inoculations, and diseaase preventitive measures.
-Cooking and nutrition classes and demonstrations such as diabetic menu planning and meal prep, healthy eating for children and families and healthy dieting.
-Personal and family financial classes, budgeting, credit counseling, home buyer seminars, retirement planning, paying for college and tax preperation basics.
-Dance and performance space for classes, community theater groups, small concerts and other performance art activities.
-Additional activities and programs for youth, in particular, activities for middle and high school studens for weekends, after-school and summer months, such as clubs, games, and STEM-related opportunities.
-Mental health counseling services.
-Senior programs and classes.
-Social services, homeless and veterans assistance programs.
-Offer additional art and culture activities to the public.

New Hope Community Partnership is working with representatives of local, state and federal government, local charitable organizations and public donors to achieve our goals and realize our mission. We are working with our State Senator to obtain a Bond Bill from the Maryland General Assembly, matching funds from private foundations and local philanthropists and donations for ongoing operating expenses.

Funding for the purchase of a site/building will take significant time. However, NHCP is pursuing services and programs prior to opening of a community center, at different venues throughout Brunswick, in partnership with other charities.

The Board of Directors of New Hope Community Partnership has significant experience working hard to help those in need and better our local community. One director is a member of our City Council, another is a member of the clergy that manages the local food bank. All directors have experience in managing nonprofit organizations. In addition, we have a team of committed volunteers who are working to make the dream of a Brunswick Community Center a reality. We also have the buy in of local government and the public who have attended our public meetings.

Since our founding in April of 2016, we have sponsored a community art contest, attended several community events to engage members of the public, hosted a family game night for First Fridays, and reached out to government representatives and community organizations. As of the writing of this report (December 2016) we next plan to 1) open a computer lab and 2) host community concerts in early 2017.
