In 2001, WUMC funded the construction of the $6 million Adams Park Community Center. The center was established to further support positive after-school and summer programs for Forest Park Southeast youth. The state-of-the-art facility includes a computer lab, dance studio, weight room, teen center, full size gymnasium, and adjacent baseball field.
In order to further expand programming and services, in 2007 Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club was engaged to help direct the operations of the center. Herbert Hoover provides programming that covers five care areas: Character & Leadership Development; The Arts; Health and Life Skills; and Sports, Fitness & Recreation. Youth members of the Boys & Girls Club at Adams Park also have access to free eye care and dental services.
WUMC continues to support the operations of the center and is committed to offering Forest Park Southeast youth the most expansive and innovative programming available. For more information or to register your child please contact 633-7900.
