About JCC: The Jacksonville Community Center (JCC) is an incorporated nonprofit organization with a 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. JCC’s mission is to create a community center to serve as a gathering place for all ages in Jacksonville and its surrounding area, with programs that meet community needs, enhance the quality of life, and promote community involvement through education, cultural activities, music, arts, recreation, and wellness, in a facility that is well maintained, accessible and safe. Current activities include community meetings, parties, family events, classes, small conferences, music events, arts groups, clubs, and staging for community events.

For nearly 20 years volunteers have operated a small community center out of the 840 square foot cottage located at 4th and Main in the heart of Jacksonville. In 2015 a newly reorganized Board of Directors put into motion an aggressive plan to renovate the cottage and expand the JCC to a 2900 square foot community center with the addition of a 1330 square foot Great Room, an event kitchen, ADA compliant rest rooms, storage space and new landscaping. An expansion plan was developed, a contractor hired, and more than $750,000 raised to construct the new community center. The construction is complete and the Grand Opening was held in January 2019. To date thousands of people have attended scores of events and activities at the community center.
