Bryant and Northside Community Centers have enhanced the quality of life in Ann Arbor for the past 20 years. Programs are funded by the City of Ann Arbor, Food Gatherers, United Way, and Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation among other sources. The community centers are operated by Community Action Network, which partners with children, youth, and families from under-resourced Washtenaw County neighborhoods to create better futures for themselves, and improve the communities in which they live. Both facilities are barrier-free.
