Senior programs are on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Doors are closed the general public on those days to minimize foot traffic, parking lot challenges, and exposure to our senior citizens.  Please call ahead if you need to come on those days for Food Bank or other services.

A note from Cheryl on April 23, 2020

In 1988 concerned citizens formed a non-profit corporation named the Black Diamond Community Center Association.  The Association is an independent organization that is not affiliated with the City.  This allowed the Center an opportunity to serve the surrounding areas needy families.  What was needed was a building to house the emergency food pantry, clothing bank, and provide a meeting place for those in need. 

There was a former bank building in Black Diamond that became available and the Center organization contacted King County to apply for a grant to purchase that building.  The grant was predicated on the Center providing services to the community for 25 years and at the end of that time the building ownership transferred to the Black Diamond Community Center Association. 

We complied by serving the community for over 25 years and the Black Diamond Community Center Association now owns this building and we wish to thank King County Community Development for their services and help.

The Black Diamond Community Center provides social, recreational and emergency services to the residents of the greater Black Diamond area.  See above for the variety of programs offered.
