To Our HOBT Community,

Thank you to the 400 people who contributed to our online survey and to those who attended our community meeting regarding the future of our home, the Avalon Theatre. Your input is critical as we make the decision to stay and make significant investments in the building or leave and rent existing facilities that meet our needs.

We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of emotions that are tied to this very special place: It’s clear that you care about the neighborhoods we serve and want HOBT programs to thrive here in the Phillips, Powderhorn, and adjacent neighborhoods. No decisions have been made yet, and we will continue to keep you updated on our process. Our next steps include additional engagement of key supporters and further financial assessment of the viability of our options.

In the meantime, please reach out to me at [email protected], if you would like to offer your help in the form of advice, connections, resources or service.

With gratitude,

Corrie Zoll
