Boys & Girls Club, Vickers

Case Study

Introduction:

A community consortium led by The Denver Foundation’s Strengthening Neighborhoods Program, the City of Denver, the Holly Area Redevelopment Project (HARP) and the Urban Land Conservancy worked together to vision the future for the Holly Square shopping center, which was devastated by a gang-related arson fire in May 2008. Through a generous grant from The Anschutz Foundation, as well as The Piton Foundation, the new Nancy P. Anschutz Center is now a welcomed neighbor to the residents of the Northeast Park Hill community. The Nancy P. Anschutz Center, home of the Jack A. Vickers Boys & Girls Club, not only helps heal the loss of an important neighborhood landmark, but it will expand services to underserved young people in the area, providing a place from them to learn, grow and succeed in life.

The Club opened late summer 2013, and serves 250 youth each day.
