Tax-Aide is a free, confidential service available to low- and middle-income taxpayers of all ages, with special attention to those ages 60 and older. Participants do not need to be an AARP member or a retiree to use this service. The program is operated by local volunteers who are IRS-certified and trained to assist in filing basic tax forms.

AARP’s Tax-Aide has been operating in Brookings for over 22 years.  The Chetco Activity Center generously donates the room, office materials, computers and reception assistance.  Donations to the Center are gratefully accepted, but not required.

Re-Discover one of the best resources in our community!!
 We hear it everyday. Visitors to the center are always amazed at this large, beautiful facility; located right here in the center of Brookings. Here we enjoy one of the best Activity Centers in the entire state of Oregon. It was dreamed of, designed and built by the people in the community. The residents, themselves, got together in the mid-seventies and decided they wanted to build a place to meet, play games, and learn while dining with friends. Through sharing their time, money, resources, talents and skills, people like the Humphreys and Manley's made their dream a reality. 

Please come visit this outstanding resource smack dab right in the center of Brookings. The Activity Center and the services offered here are provided for all the Brookings Community, regardless of age. Refer your friends here for the activities, join us at lunch time or learn something new in a class. Remember, the facilities and meeting rooms of the Center are also available to rent for your family or company's activities for a low fee.

This is a fun, friendly place to be--The Chetco Activity Center. Below you will find a list of the major, monthly, weekly, daily, and annual programs, offered by by the CA. In addition to the activities, there are fun monthly events held with an emphasis on fun! Please, come to the CAC soon.
