Brighton Center, Inc.


Established 1966

Mission To create opportunities for individuals and families to reach self-sufficiency through family support services, education, employment, and leadership.

Serving Our Community Brighton Center wraps a community of support around individuals and families by tackling the issues that prevent people from becoming self-sufficient, removing the barriers they face, and creating hope so that goals can be achieved and dreams realized. From our modest beginnings in 1966, we have grown to provide a wide range of programs and services, which include meeting basic needs, adult and early childhood education, workforce development, substance abuse recovery for women, affordable housing, financial education and counseling, youth services, and neighborhood based programs. Our comprehensive approach to bundling services and programs allows us to meet the often complex needs of a family as they become our partners in creating change.
