Dysart Community Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1962 by a group of twelve determined volunteers to provide basic health and educational resources to local families on the verge of poverty. Educating those in need was the priority for these volunteers and remains so today.

From its founding more than fifty years ago, Dysart Community Center has expanded its services to provide a variety of educational programs for thousands of West Valley residents in our local communities. Today we proudly serve our community with GD, ESL and citizenship courses for adults, after-school and summer care for youths and teens and access to various basic needs resources for families and individuals.
