WAMS’ building, located at 6 Institute Rd in Worcester is home to several organizations in addition to WAMS, including the Central Massachusetts Housing Alliance, the Central Area Office of the United Church of Christ and United Congregational Church. As such, “6 Institute” serves as a daily hub for critically important programming and activities that enhance the well-being of our community and its residents. Designed by Stephen Earl and containing numerous pieces of stained glass designed by Sarah Wyman Whitman, WAMS’ building occasionally also supports programming and activities that celebrate it’s cultural and artistic presence as one of Worcester’s architectural masterpieces.
WAMS has created policies that welcome building use by organizations whose social and cultural programs are congruent with our own efforts to lift up human dignity and promote social justice.
