Sussex Borough Community & Cultural Center
Sussex Borough Community & Cultural Center (SBCCC), located at 37 Main Street in Sussex, provides an innovative array of programs and services to help individuals, families and the community thrive. SBCCC offers events, workshops, and resources for all members of the Sussex community and surrounding areas, including a “laptop lab” and programming focused on youth, senior, family and adult education, enrichment, recreation, and entrepreneurship/small business. The Center also provides access to Norwescap’s broad array of supportive services; community members can meet directly with Norwescap staff to learn more about our various programs and apply for services that might benefit themselves and their families. In addition, regular events such as free pop-up produce markets; vaccine clinics and health screenings; and nutrition and healthy cooking classes offer support for the health and well-being of our community members.
Have a skill you want to share with the community? Enjoy playing board games with children? Want to help seniors with technology?

By the Community, for the Community
In 2020, Norwescap collaborated with the leadership of Sussex Borough to establish and facilitate a series of collaborative community conversations, based on the Dialogue to Change model as created by Everyday Democracy. The town’s mayor and members of the Council, as well as other local leaders, business owners and residents, came together in these conversations to identify strengths and challenges within the community, and discuss ideas and solutions to improve the community and build more opportunities for its members. One result of these dialogues was the creation of the Sussex Borough Cultural and Community Center (SBCCC) in the vacant first floor space of Norwescap’s Main Street property, which officially opened in Spring 2022.
Norwescap collaborates with multiple community partners to enhance the programming and services offered at the SBCCC. We are grateful to our partners, including the Sussex Borough Commumity & Cultural Advisory Board; Pass it Along; Local Share; Sparta Community Food Pantry; The Sussex County Hunger Coalition; Zufall Center; Lakeland Bank, Bakers Pharmacy and Sophia Inclusive Catholic Community for partnering with us to bring this wonderful resource to Sussex Borough!
