2017-2018 Annual Report

Expanding our impactIn September 2018 we opened the doors to the Brassworks building housing all of our middle, high school, college, and career readiness programs as well as beautiful space for our community. The Ironworks building reconfiguration will be done by June when we will be opening five new community rooms, an expanded food pantry, a new classroom, and the relocation of the fitness center to the gym. The last year has truly been a whirlwind of building renovation and planned program expansion, but our mission has remained at the core – to introduce people young and old to things that help ignite their dreams and fuel their potential. We are most certainly strengthening lives and securing futures … with your help.
