The Wade Center exists to nurture Bluefield's children, youth, and their families spiritually, physically, emotionally, and intellectually through practical programs and mentoring relationships.
"They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations"
"In the heart of the community with the community in our heart"
Located in the heart of Bluefield, West Virginia, near the intersection of routes 52 and 19, the Wade Center provides the perfect strategic location to meet the needs of the greater Bluefield Community.
In 2005, we formed a nonprofit group to raise funds to purchase and restore the former Wade School building. This large facility includes a cafeteria, gym, theater, and 20 classrooms. The Wade Center has repurposed the classrooms into spaces for computer labs, art classes, tutoring, music lessons, game room, dormitories, clothing closet, backpack supply closet, and more.
Hundreds of volunteers, along with our leaders on staff, help us to educate and encourage Bluefield's youth each year. Through various programs and outreach activities, dignity is being restored in this community. The Wade Center has worked to provide a safe, nurturing environment to help give the next generation a chance to meet their potential. It takes ongoing support of businesses, organizations, churches, and individuals to ensure that this this vital resource to our community continues.
