The logo for the Manila Community Resource Center

The Manila Community Resource Center offers a warm and inviting place for residents and local community members to come together for the purpose of promoting communication, personal growth, and positive social change. MCRC offers a wide range of services that are based on needs of the local residents. As an integral part of the community, the Manila Community Resource Center welcomes local residents to get involved and help shape the future of the resource center as we strive to help build healthy communities in a dynamic and changing environment.

We facilitate support groups (0-5 playgroup, and a parenting group), education training and outreach, holiday community celebrations (Thanksgiving, winter, spring), and information and referral services for families and individuals. We also offer temporary assistance for those in need. Our services are available to anyone who lives or works in the Humboldt Bay region. Please contact us for more information, for availability, or for playgroups.
