Our Place - An Active Community Building Center
The physical building is a hub for the broader community to gather, dialogue, create, problem solve, socialize and interact with each other to promote unity and cohesion. When one part of our community is not thriving, we all lose. A neighborhood is stronger when its residents feel connected to each other. We are that place.
Spaces within our building rent for a discounted rate of $50 per hour.
The Conference Room is located on the 1st floor of the MLK Center. It features a small white board and a pull down projection screen. A large wall is also available for large projection. The room seats approximately 25 in a large square, and can also accomodate theatre style or classroom style seating. Outside catering is permitted, and a kitchenette or commercial kitchen is available for an additional fee.
The 1st Floor Open Area serves as our co-working space during the day. In the evening and on the weekend it hosts a variety of neighborhood meetings, membership meetings and community events. Theatre style seating can accomodate 100, or 70 at tables. This space features a 50" smart TV, and a mobile projection screen is available. Outside catering is permitted, and a kitchenette or commercial kitchen is available for an additional fee.

"I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence." Coretta Scott King
