Our Impact

The Martin Luther King Children Center is a non-profit, community-based organization that provides care to local families and children.  We help students strengthen their literacy skills in a nurturing environment to ensure they thrive in school.

The Center was opened on June 11, 2004, and from then till now, we remain committed to helping local children from kindergarten through high school all across the greater Dawson community.  We do this by running two essential programs – an After School Study Program and a Summer Day Camp program. 

​Our goal is to help secure a bright and promising future for our kids so that they can become future game-changers who thrive on making positive contributions to their community and beyond.
