Moriches Community Center, Inc. is a not for profit 501(c)(3) service agency dedicated to preventing youth involvement in negative behavior, developing healthy relationships between local youth and adults, and providing outreach assistance to local needy families, thereby improving the general quality of life for all residents of the Moriches Bay area.
We envision Moriches Community Center as a safe, well supervised, drug and alcohol free center which will provide all local residents with opportunities to experience activities that broaden their knowledge, enhance their self esteem, promote healthy relationships and strengthen their commitment to our communities.

Additionally, the Center plans to serve senior citizens, families and other community organizations, and initiate intergenerational activities to promote more cohesive communities.
