The TAD Center

To provide alternative activities for the youth of the community that are fun and drug-free, the Alliance purchased and remodeled the old Boys Club building which includes a gymnasium.

Center ActivitiesThe TAD Center offers many different activities, including arts and crafts, game rooms, a gymnasium for basketball and volleyball, a weight room, and even a concession stand. The center is available for activities by other groups that also help our youth find a drug-free life style, such as churches, schools, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts.
