In 2005 Alderman Anthony Beale and a dedicated team of Roseland Little League parents dared to dream that their community could one day host a state-of-the-art sports facility. A place that would encourage, inspire, educate and improve the skills and health of their changing community. Thirteen years and 18 million dollars later, Pullman Community Center opened its doors and arms to a community that was ready for change.
Today, Pullman Community Center (operating under The Roseland Youth Center) is so much more than a state-of-the-art indoor sports complex. It is the hub of a changing community, and the success it has seen in one year is astounding. It is home to free and low-cost baseball, basketball, soccer, and football programs for area youth, and it hosts 5:30 Scholars — Pullman Community Center’s signature afterschool academic enrichment program. These programs have not only given area youth new opportunities and a safe space to grow, but they have paved the way for 30 high school seniors to receive full college athletic scholarships for the 2019/20 school year via the HEROH program, and participants in the 5:30 Scholars program see significant academic improvement. This is highlighted by five recent high school juniors in the program scoring in the 97th percentile on the SAT.
With no city, state or federal funding for operations, Pullman Community Center is reliant on our community partners, volunteers, and donors to help us continue to create positive change in this growing, thriving community.
