Your Lansing Community Center

At South Side Community Coalition, we are committed to enhancing the lives of members in the community through our wide range of activities and events. Over the years, we have been recognized as the leading community center and go the extra mile to make sure our members are happy with our services.

Ever since opening our doors to the community in 2003, we have provided members the chance to get together and experience what we’re all about. Our mission has always been to provide a cultural and educational experience for members of the Lansing community — and we’ve done everything we can to achieve this goal to this very day.

Bringing Change to the Community

South Side Community Coalition History

Opening its door for the first time on October 11, 2003, the South Side Community Center was started by a group of citizens seeking to meet the needs of their neighbors. As the only community center in South Lansing, we offer a unique set of services and are known for our caring one on one service.


Since opening in October 2003. South Side Community Coalition has served hundreds of Southside youth, families and seniors.  We started a group of interested Southside residents who wanted to offer services and programs to Southsiders. In the beginning we set up a summer school program for high school students who needed help getting credits to graduate. 

Then we decided that we wanted to have something for all residents thoughout the year. So, in October 2003 we opened our center. 


Now we have programs and services that meet a variety of needs. They include: After School programs and tutoring; Senior Luncheons; Food commodity distribution; Nutrition and health care forums; Summer breakfast and lunch programs; Summer youth programs and a garden club.
