The Meeting Space is Currently Closed at Community First Foundation

May 19, 2021

Community First Foundation closed our meeting space when COVID-19 entered our world. We want you and our employees healthy! While our community is beginning to reopen, our meeting space remains closed as we begin efforts to bring our staff back to the office.

We’re excited to see you in person soon and invite you to sign up to be the first to know when our meeting space is up and running.

We Help Nonprofits with a Great Place to Meet.

Our free meeting space helps power nonprofits by offering a comfortable facility designed to meet your needs. We want to make something better everyday. Offering our meeting rooms free for nonprofits is one way we can do that.

Our collaborative spaces offer 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.
