CMLC is a community-based learning center where individuals and families of all cultures come together to share, mentor, and understand their different cultures, to access resources, and to build a cohesive community in a safe, welcoming environment.
Resources and programming are free. No appointment is necessary during the open hours, Monday-Friday 10am-5pm.
CMLC encourages active exchange of ideas and conversation. People of all beliefs coming to the center should feel comfortable; therefore, religious proselytizing has no place in the connections made at the center.
