In order to protect our community members and employees, and in alignment with recommendations from the CDC, Community First Foundation has decided to close our meeting space and cancel meetings. This is an ongoing and rapidly changing situation, but for now we will be following the schedule laid out below:
Meeting space closed and all meetings through May 15 have been cancelled.
May 18 through 29: Already scheduled meetings remain on the calendar, but no new meetings can be scheduled. We will keep you posted on the status of these meetings. It is possible that it will be necessary to close the meeting space in the coming weeks.
We appreciate your patience and hope you stay well during this time.
If you have any questions about your reservation, please contact Valerie Brown at email@example.com.
Our free meeting space helps power nonprofits by offering a facility designed with their needs in mind. By offering rooms for no charge, we are strengthening nonprofits and building community.
The collaborative space offers a variety of rooms and configurations that accommodate up to 60 people. Robust audio/visual equipment and a large catering kitchen help you put your best foot forward for trainings, meetings and retreats. Located in Olde Town Arvada, the space is just five minutes north of I-70 on Wadsworth and 15 minutes northwest of downtown Denver.
Registered users can schedule a space now, up to 90 days in advance.Schedule a Room
