Hello.

Many of you have asked when weSPARK will re-open its doors. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and, at this moment, cannot provide an estimated time for gathering in person once again. At WeSPARK, many of the individuals who pass through our doors have compromised immune systems. For this reason, we have decided to keep our doors closed for now. The safety and well-being of our guests, staff, facilitators, and practitioners must remain top priorities.

Please take a look at our online programming, including some exciting new classes and a workshop on July 20.
If you are not a current WeSPARK guest, please email us at intakes@wespark.org to schedule a brief Welcome Meeting, a required first step to access our FREE programs, workshops, individual appointments and support groups.
