The Walsh Center


The Walsh Center is a community center that serves as a safe environment for kids and teens in the community to play sports, do homework and be informed about avoiding substance abuse and peer pressure. The kids are under supervision of Gavin Foundation staff at all times.

The Walsh Center hosts dances and movie nights for kids, as well as athletic programs like South Boston Pop Warner cheerleading, BNBL, Gate of Heaven CYO basketball, the Tenacity Program and more. The Walsh Center is dedicated to keeping kids involved in the community and away from drugs and alcohol.
