About Us

A Brief History of the Island Community Center
Following community surveys of Islanders that identified concerns and specific needs, the Island Community Center was organized and opened in 2001.

In 2002 it was formally incorporated as a non-profit organization and the Internal Revenue Service granted the center formal non-profit status.

Under lease agreement with the Town of Stonington, ICC is based at the former Stonington High School building that actually started as a community center more than 50 years ago.

Our government is by a term-limited Board of Trustees, consisting of local citizens and one selectman from each town who serve as an ex-officio board member. All are devoted to our mission.

Our part-time staff depends on community volunteers to help keep the center open and the programs operating. Through collaboration with community organizations and individuals, we offer a variety of programs and make rental space available for special events to fulfill our mission.

VISION STATEMENT
The Island Community Center strives to provide facilities and programs for all members of the community to enhance their well-being.

Our goals

The following goals were realized: set up and implemented an internal communication system with operating policies and procedures; offered programs not duplicated elsewhere; ensured that existing programs were successful before expanding to others; expanded our reach of programs to older islanders and seasonal residents; involved more of the younger generation, by adding a teen to our board; expanded grant writing capabilities of our staff and board and sought community help when we needed it.

We continue to work on being as financially independent and self-sufficient as possible and to only take on projects that can be financially self-supporting. We have found that the need is frequently present, however the funding is usually not. This has proven to be an extremely challenging balance act.

We will continue to gather information for a community pool.
