Chicago, IL - Broadway Youth Center has largely completed the transition from its old location at Broadway and Belmont to its new location at Wellington Avenue United Church of Christ, 615 W. Wellington, and held an open house July 22 to mark the occasion.

Music played as BYC clients and friends from the community meandered in to see the new space. It was a warm afternoon. Most of the lights were off and fans were going full-blast in the large multi-purpose room that now accommodates most of BYC's client services.

The Wellington location will be BYC's home for at least the next year, according to communications manager David Dodd.

After outgrowing their location at Broadway and Belmont, BYC had since been operating out of both Howard Brown Health Center's Lakeview offices, 3837 N. Broadway, and Broadway United Methodist Church, 3338 N. Broadway. Services will continue at the HBHC Lakeview facility, but BUMC-centered services have gradually shifted to the Wellington location.
