"The Center is a haven where I can meet friends, attend classes and lectures. It is my home away from home."
- Charlotte Rick
"If it weren't for the staff and programs at Whittaker Center I would be lost. When I'm at Whittaker Center I'm at ease, I don't have a worry in the world. I've been coming to The Educational Alliance since I was 8 years old. Volunteering is my way to give back to The Educational Alliance for what they have done for me and my family throughout my lifetime. It is my home away from home."
Don't be a bore
We have exercise, dancing and classes galore
So don't stay at home
Come out and make friends
You won't be sorry
The fun never ends
At our home away from Home
