Como Community Center
The Como Community Center was built in 1970, and is located on Horne Street near West Vickery Boulevard. Its after-school program has been in existence for over 20 years, and between 120 and 140 students participate annually. Additionally, Como is the only community center in Fort Worth that has a track and field team, as well as pee wee football and cheerleading leagues.
Among the many other programs it offers, the center provides an evening meal program daily, a weekend food program and a Mobile Pantry initiative, which is done in collaboration with Tarrant Area Food Bank and is held every third Friday. It is also a Community Action Partners site that provides assistance to low-income individuals.
