Mississippi Gulf Coast Kroc Center opened its doors in September of 2011 and is the only center in Mississippi. Our 52,000 square facility includes a fitness center, gymnasium, café, dance/exercise studio, classrooms, dining hall, play care, youth activity room, arts & music studio’s, and chapel. The indoor pool, water slide, splash pad, and party rooms are what makes our center the place to be. In keeping with Joan Kroc’s vision, the Kroc Center provides a variety of programs for individuals of all ages and from all walks of life, aimed to strengthen families and enrich the lives of youth, adults, and seniors. When you join the Kroc Center, you’re not only exercising your body, you’re exercising compassion by helping The Salvation Army meet the needs of our own community. Operating costs for the center are funded by sales of memberships, rentals, and events. Donations made to The Salvation Army continue to solely fund Social Service programs and outreach.
