Today, it is more than just a community center -- as described earlier, it is a place where the community comes together and grows. Everything from drug rehab programs to cooking classes is offered. They've even got a program called the Bike Kitchen, where if you work on fixing bikes for a certain number of hours, you actually get to earn a bike. In addition to all this, the Jefferson Community Center aims to be self-sustainable. It's already on the right track, including rainwater catchment systems and solar panels just to name a few of the things. Moreover, there are gardens with both native and non-native plants that feed the community and offer a place where birds and bees can come to pollinate flowers and whatnot. Another aim of the Jefferson Community Center is inclusiveness, meaning that everyone is welcome and nobody is left behind. There are rainbow steps to symbolize this idea near the playground!
