“OPERATION COMMUNITY REBOOT” (It’s ALL about the community!)

We need to launch an initiative to get a Manchester Bidwell Purpose Center built in Denver or Aurora!


Imagine that, every day, you walk into a beautiful building and are greeted by a smiling, encouraging staff. Light streams around you and emphasizes thought-provoking, fascinating art. Down the hall, you hear jazz emanating from one of the art studios. Students walk by you, laughing, excited by what they are learning. The smells of gourmet cooking waft through the air and, in the courtyard, you see a fountain sparkling.

Manchester Bidwell combines many seemingly disparate elements – adult career training, youth arts education, jazz presentation, orchid and floral sales – into a dynamic whole with a proven record of positively changing the lives of undeserved populations in Pittsburgh and the surrounding region.
