The Home of Education, Arts, Resources, and Technology
A Place of Welcome
The HEART aims to serve as a center for the community to foster connections of all kinds (friendship, support circles, networking, and collaboration), providing several welcome spaces to hold everything from your next training event, book club meeting, client presentation, or brainstorming session.
We have created several welcoming spaces to meet a wide array of needs that are open to the community for use.
We believe education, access to food and resources, and a supportive community is the best way to make a difference. The mission of the HEART Kitchen is to help provide healthy food and educational opportunities through a variety of monthly programs and events.
Our second floor contains light-filled classrooms furnished and meant for various purposes. Each room includes access to FREE high-speed WiFi and technology for presentations.
As we renovated the HEART, we were looking for ways to improve our exterior spaces.
We partnered with Trellis for Tomorrow and our Hall Street Neighbors to design and build an incredible community garden. Our raised beds were built in 2020 and have produced more than 600 lbs of fresh, organic produce each year over the course of three growing seasons - spring, summer, and fall!
The garden is lovingly tended to and managed by our neighborhood volunteers, guided by Trellis staff members. All produce is harvested and utilized by these neighbors or donated to our area pantries for use in our community.
Non-Profits in Residence
The third floor of the HEART has been dedicated to providing a "home" for our non-profit partners serving the Phoenixville area who need administrative and program space in the heart of the community.
Our parking lot on Hall Street can accommodate 8 vehicles. We recommend parking up on Church Street and walking down to our campus. We ask that you do not park on Hall Street out of respect for our neighbors. Thank you!
Our building was constructed in 1959 without accommodations for accessibility. We are currently working on plans for a ADA compliant ramp and lift system for our building. We hope to accomplish these accommodations in the very near future.
As our building serves as a hub for various groups, including young children and those who may be immunocompromised, we recommend that masks to be worn in all of our buildings, but it is not required. Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep our community safe and healthy!
