Meeting Spaces

DMF offers free or low-cost meeting space for health organizations and nonprofits for training, healthy coaching classes, planning retreats, and events. Scheduling and cost are no longer obstacles to mobilizing nonprofits, businesses, community leaders and others to address important issues in our region.

Our building is a gift to the community, opened in 2013 to create deeper dialog, forge stronger partnerships and elevate more effective solutions.

If you have questions or would like to schedule a space or a tour, please contact us
