BROADMOOR ARTS & WELLNESS CENTER

Located on the second floor of the former St. Matthias School, the Arts & Wellness Center (AWC) is designed to enrich the community at every life stage by bringing together innovative, creative programs and holistic wellness services in one vibrant collaborative space.

 

More than 250 people participate in the affordable program opportunities each day at the Arts and Wellness Center and partnering organizations, including youth ballet classes, basketball, after-school tutoring, music lessons and cooking classes. Adults and seniors take advantage of fitness and nutrition classes, Spanish conversation circles, citizenship tutoring, counseling and parenting workshops. Services are designed to impact people of all ages.

 

These programs generate opportunity, increase overall racial and economic equity and improve the quality of life of individuals in the community. The synthesis between community spaces provides individuals with a supportive network, sense of belonging and increased self-worth.   

AWC is committed to providing programs that address the needs and interests of families throughout the neighborhood and city-wide, improving access to opportunity, health and holistic well-being. 

Organizations are invited to join our efforts to provide accessible and affordable programs for the people who live, play and work in Broadmoor.
