Mission and Values

At Oakwood Community Center, we envision a city where strangers become neighbors, and neighbors join together for the common good.

Our mission is to bring neighbors together and build bridges among grassroots organizations in the city of Troy, New York. We do this by maintaining the historic Oakwood building as a welcoming and nourishing space.

These are our values:

  • Diversity
  • Neighborliness
  • Hospitality
  • Civic engagement
  • Social justice
