Our History and Mission

The Downey Coordinating Council is a monthly gathering of representatives from various civic and service organizations who meet to share information about their events and activities of interest to the public.  Its membership reflects the broad range of organizations and volunteers serving the southeast area.

The Coordinating Council has a long history that predates the incorporation of Downey as a city.  In the early 1950’s the local Alameda School District Improvement Association spearheaded the formation of local service groups working in concert to identify and address major issues of concern.

Downey was incorporated as a city in 1956, and in the late 1970’s the Coordinating Council shifted the focus of its mission to what it is today.  The monthly meetings assist in publicizing the work of member organizations, and the Council celebrates the importance of volunteers with its annual Community Service Awards Dinner.

The public is encouraged to use this website and its calendar as an easy reference guide for upcoming events.
