Our free meeting space helps power nonprofits by offering a facility designed with their needs in mind. By offering rooms with no charge, we are strengthening nonprofits, honoring our heritage in Jefferson County and building strong 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.
