Community. Creativity. Cancer Support.

Smith Center is a nonprofit health, education, and arts organization in Washington DC. Our mission is to develop and promote healing practices that explore physical, emotional, and mental resources that lead to life-affirming changes for people affected by cancer. 

Our programs focus on cultivating each person’s innate ability to heal, helping participants explore meaning and maintain hope—even in the face of life’s challenges.

We welcome you to join us for programs, visit us at our U Street Center and Art Gallery, or contact us to lean more.
