Jackson Community Center

Our Mission And Vision

Our History

Jackson Community Center (JCC) was founded in 2009 by Elizabeth Campbell, a retired banking professional and native of Orange, Texas.  Ms. Campbell's deep concern for the economic plight of the underserved residents in the surrounding areas of her childhood home is what motivated her to return to Orange to rebuild these communities.  After sharing her vision with other civic and community leaders, she decided to start an organization that would address the social and economic needs of the community.  JCC serves as a catalyst for economic uplift and community change with an initial focus on the youth and plans for future support to other residents.  Through mentoring, life skills training, and career development programs, JCC is improving the quality of life and future outlook for underserved residents.

In addition to JCC's Board Members, who actively serve the organization, many community residents donate their time to support JCC programs and activities.  Their contributions are essential to the success of JCC.  We would like to acknowledge our current volunteers for their consistent service:
