Partnerships are the essence of the Community Center at Lake Chelan. We’re grateful to team up with these businesses and individuals to provide the best possible resources for the community — together.

BE.Fit Chelan

We’re so excited to be partnering with BE.Fit Chelan, a local provider of physical fitness classes with Jen Bordner and Sara England. Two of our core values are wellness and relationships, and BE.Fit Chelan is a great organization to help people in the area achieve their health goals. BE.Fit Chelan promises to provide a safe and encouraging fitness community where people feel connected, supported, challenged and motivated to be their best selves. BE.Fit hopes to expand their current offerings to include physical fitness classes for senior citizens, a water aerobics program, and expanded wellness instruction to people of all ages and fitness levels.

Kahiau Volleyball Club

Kahiau, (pronounced Ka-He-Ou) translated from Hawaiian means “To give generously from the heart without expectation of return.” which we believe funnels directly back to our mission at the community center. Kahiau’s 10+ volleyball teams will utilize the two regulation-sized sand volleyball courts and indoor gym space for practices, matches and tournaments. Kahiau believes that volleyball is a platform for teaching many life lessons and building character traits that will help the young women and young men they serve to be successful in a constantly changing world. No matter their age or skill level, everyone is welcome to join the Kahiau club.

We’re honored to partner with local organization, Only7Seconds, a local group dedicated to combating the potentially devastating effects of social isolation. Only7Seconds plans to hold monthly public workshops at the new facility to enhance the lives of our area’s residents, with a special focus on those who struggle with depression, anxiety, fear and host of other troubling problems. There are many ways we can work together as organizations who share similar values, and we’ll be finalizing those plans over the next several months.

The Community Center is fortunate to partner with RealLife NCW, a local church organization who considers themselves a “church for people who don’t like church.” RealLife has been holding services in the Performing Arts Center of Chelan High School since their inception in 2012 — an arrangement that was never meant to be permanent. We’re happy to not only rent space to RealLife for their Sunday morning services and youth engagement activities, but also office and storage space to allow them to operate out of one central location. RealLife is committed to serving the underserved and giving back to the community in tangible ways, which we feel directly aligns with our mission at the Community Center.

The Community Center is pleased to partner with well-known non-profit Thrive Chelan Valley, which has served, empowered and advocated for area youth over the last 21 years. Thrive intends to utilize the CCLC in a variety of ways to expand its services to an even broader scope. Thrive Chelan Valley has done a great job of supporting our communities with their mentorship programs, the Food2Schools program and the teen center. We feel the relationship with Thrive is in strong alignment with both their mission and ours. Partnering with the Community Center helps ensure that our valley’s youth and their families will soon have broader access to a hub of resources that will enhance their lives and the lives of generations to come.

We are looking forward to welcoming new tenant, The Vine Coffee, to the Community Center as our exclusive convenience food and beverage vendor. They will not only provide coffee, juices, breakfast sandwiches, paninis, homemade cookies and pre-packaged foods to Community Center patrons, but also the community as a whole. Owners Holly and Ryan Moody are thrilled to fulfill their dreams of owning their own business while simultaneously giving back to the community they’ve called home for many years. The Vine Coffee will be located in a prime location near the front door of the Center, providing an indoor parlor style environment in addition to having outdoor tables and chairs.
