Jefferson Community Center and Park

The Westside Community Improvement Association, Inc. (a non-profit 501(c)(3) Public Charity) supports and facilitates programs to combat urban blight and revitalize neighborhoods by increasing recreational, educational and vocational opportunities where they are either lacking altogether or insufficient to the needs of the community.   The Association’s activities are dedicated to fostering a sense of working together for the benefit of the greater Eureka community.

WCIA Mission Statement

The old Jefferson Elementary School has been transformed by community volunteers of Eureka’s Westside Community Improvement Association (WCIA).   The Jefferson Project has already completed a playground area with new equipment and has opened the building to many organizations for meetings and recreational activities.  The excitement builds as our neighborhood shows its commitment to a clean safe neighborhood full of activities for all ages, from gardening and cooking to dance and drumming, improving oneself an learning new skills.  Join us with your ideas, projects and energy!

Weekday Free Meals for Kids ages 18 & Under

Jefferson operates a USDA CACFP nutrition program, providing delicious and healthy free meals to any and all kids ages 18 and under. We are currently operating our meal service Monday through Friday from 1pm-5pm. Meals are served first come, first served. We prepare our food from scratch at our on-site kitchen!

Family Resource Center

Do you need help accessing a service or resource? Our dedicated team of resource specialists are here to help community members navigate getting the help they need, whatever that may be. We can provide direct assistance with one of our staff (call for an appointment!) and also have an on-site computer lab for those looking to access internet / computer for independent help. Jefferson’s Family Resource Center (FRC) is open Monday-Friday 10am-4pm, closed on holidays.
