Founded in 1985 by I.T. Bookman, a member of the neighboring Pilgrim Community Church, and largely supported by the Church and it's members, the I.T. Bookman Community Center was built on the foundation of a communal need for multipurpose space within the community, with the purpose of embracing the needs of the surrounding Oceanview, Merced Heights, and Ingleside neighborhoods and serving it's residents better. Today, known for its partnerships with the Stonestown YMCA and Department of Aging and Adult Services, the staff at I.T. Bookman Community Center continue to work to develop and manage quality activities and programs targeted to all age groups in the surrounding communities, creating an atmosphere within the Center that encourages positive growth through the use of the facility for civic and private activities and events.
I.T. Bookman Community Center is a non-profit resource base for community driven programming in the Oceanview, Merced Heights, and Ingleside communities, striving to recognize and address the needs of community members through the development of sustainable programs and services.
