Please note: Our building expansion has resumed (May 2018), therefore our upstairs entrance is unavailable for use until late Fall. Please use our lower level entrance (our elevator or stairwell allows access to the upperlevel).

Also, during this time the bus stop on the north side of the street outside of our building will be moved to the corner of Roosevelt & Dovercourt, slightly east of its current location. 

We have an upstairs entrance on Dovercourt Avenue, and a downstairs entrance at the parking lot & pool level. Our building is wheelchair accessible, and we have an elevator. Parking is free. Paratranspo pickup is downstairs (parking lot entrance)
