A NETWORK OF STATE-OF-THE-ART FACILITIES SHARING A COMMON GOAL:

Providing children and families with opportunities to discover and develop their passions and talents within their own neighborhood.

We can help bring our city together by declaring our love to all of its children and showing them the faith we have in their future.

Joan Kroc, 1998

Joan Kroc, wife of McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc, said that she took a tour of San Diego and it was then that she recognized a community that was in desperate need of a safe gathering place, a place with facilities and trained professionals to nurture children’s social skills, arts appreciation and athletic potential. She described The Kroc Center as being a beacon of light and hope in the community.

Mrs. Kroc entrusted The Salvation Army with $90 million to build the first Kroc Center in the Rolando neighborhood of San Diego. Sadly, she passed away a little more than a year after it opened. She was so pleased with what was accomplished here that she left $1.5 billion to The Salvation Army to build centers like this across the country. Today, there are 26 Kroc Centers nationwide.

Kroc Centers are designed to be an integral part of each unique community.

CREATED AS A RESPONSE TO EACH COMMUNITY’S NEEDS

Every Kroc Center offers classes, services and amenities that are unique to each individual community’s needs.

CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL

Scholarships & reduced price memberships make it possible for everyone to attend life enriching classes and opportunities.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH & WORSHIP

A Church and is a key component of each Center, providing a place for guests to worship and to spread the love of Jesus Christ.

Making a difference, one community at a time.
