So, we set this Year 1 goal... 

and then we crushed it by Week 6 of opening our doors.

The 1,000+ people that we hoped to interact with for grant-reporting in Spring 2019? They attended Chamber of Commerce & Rotary International networking events, ArcGIS workshops, yoga classes, dance classes, peer-to-peer classes, family planning workshops, an elementary school rock band concert, local community group meetings, local artist gallery receptions, puzzle groups, and a creative economy gathering. They telecommuted side-by-side with neighbors they had never met before. They attended interviews for a fellow startup nonprofit that's waiting for its facility to be built. They gained customers. And consulted. And coached. And donated time and resources. They each interacted with new people. They demonstrated the need for a shared Main Street community space. And this is just the beginning. More people are reaching out with new uses for The Space On Main everyday!

The response to The Space has been overwhelmingly positive and we need your help to keep it going. If you have the resources to support us this #GivingTuesday, we promise to put it to good use. Donate here...
