About A community center in the center of our communities
Description Mission

The Garage in Gilman exists to strengthen the Iroquois West communities and enrich the lives of community members by providing a place to work, play, learn, celebrate, serve, and be together.

Our Vision

While we hope to be a community center enjoyed by all, our primary focus is to provide a place for our youth. Our vision for this center is:
• A welcoming place where everyone is invited and encouraged to participate
• Programs and activities that provide our youth with knowledge, skills, support, and confidence to succeed
• A safe place to provide “down time” for youth and families to relax and spend time together
• A place for local organizations to host programs for the community
• A meeting place for families, groups, or clubs
