Our Place, a nonprofit community center, was created in 1972, "providing social activities, suppers, games, and music to low-income people from all over Greater Portland." The building had been bought through the Portland City Council with $35,000.00 from the former federal Model Cities program and turned over to the nonprofit organization.
