"City" piece on the Preble Street Resource Center, which purchased the Casco Bay
"City" piece on the Preble Street Resource Center, which purchased the Casco Bay Box Co. building on Cumberland Avenue in Portland last year for $600,000. The primary purpose was to relocate its teen drop-in center, which has been temporarily housed at the Chestnut Street United Methodist Church for five years. The new center will also house some administrative offices and the city-run Health Care for the Homeless clinic, which is used by about 1,600 people each year, with a total of 10,000 visits annually. During a private meeting on March 28, representatives from Preble Street, the city of Portland and Back Bay expressed concern about the center's new location. All will have a chance to publicly speak out against the project because it must go through a major site plan review, public hearings and a planning board review.
