Mission / Vision


Our mission is to equip each youth that comes to Goodnow Community Center with the tools to help make them successful in life, to provide opportunities for their character to be strengthened and to be a resource to the community



Goodnow Community Center’s vision is to provide meaningful educational and artistic enrichment to youth while giving support and identity to the Frankford community.


Goals and Objectives
