Opened since May 2005, Double “L” Community Center has become a viable resource to the Auburn Gresham and Englewood communities. They are a Christian nonprofit organization who believes in purpose and destiny. Committed to excellence, the Double “L” Community Center serves as a resource and support system to lift other as the climb to higher levels in knowing and being.
