Venues & Locations

Do you have ideas for places to host future OFCY grantee convenings? We are always interested in exploring new places and trying to find a space that works best for the community of service providers. Since the fund supports program citywide, we look to have spaces that are centrally-located and transit-accessible. Parking availability is a plus. Meeting space needs to fit 100-150 people comfortably. Space for smaller-group break-out sessions is desirable. Spaces must be ADA accessible. Locations with gender-neutral restrooms are also desired. If you have suggestions for meeting spaces, please share with your OFCY grant manager to help us out. Thank you for your help!
