Mission Statement

As stewards of this historic building, we are committed to provide a cooperative environment for arts, cultural, and spiritual activities that enrich lives

Description

The historic Grant Avenue building was constructed in 1908 and is now designated as a Colorado Historic Landmark. It is also part of the recently established Grant Street Historic District. Originally, this 30,000-sqaure-foot structure served as a place of worship for the Grant Avenue United Methodist Church, but in 2000 the congregation donated the building to the community. Today, the Community Center is used by more than 20 local nonprofit organizations and other community groups, serving approximately 2,000 people each month.

Over the past 100 years, Historic Grant Avenue has served as a focal point for local social, educational, health-related and spiritual gatherings, as well as a meeting space for state and national conferences. Over time, the surrounding neighborhoods have transformed. Today the Speer, Baker and WestWashingtonPark neighborhoods constitute an interesting mix of old and young, wealthy and poor, families and singles. Current Grant Avenue building partners draw participants from Castle Rock to Broomfield, and from Lakewood to Aurora. One group actually draws participants from as far away as Greeley.
