Who We Are

An Engaged Community Partner

More Than a Landlord
The PSF Community Center believes that bringing organizations together can strengthen their impact on the community. The building strives to create a welcoming physical and philosophical environment that supports the work of Allston Brighton nonprofits. The Community Center offers opportunities for nonprofits to network and collaborate to innovatively and strategically address community needs.

Enriching the Community
The PSF Community Center is a community partner which engages with organizations inside and outside of the Community Center to enrich the Allston Brighton community. As an engaged member of the community, PSF Community Center is constantly assessing the needs of the neighborhood and collaborates with others to respond to these needs.

Promoting Food Access
In response to a dearth of healthy food options in Oak Square, PSF Community Center partnered with the Allston Brighton Health Collaborative to launch the Brighton Summer Market Farmers Market in 2015. In 2019, PSF Community Center launched the Winter Farmers Market and began hosting the Fresh Truck Mobile Market weekly at PSF Community Center. PSF also administers the Fresh Bucks for Fresh Food Program, addressing food insecurity by distributing gift cards to community members in need.

Addressing Health Disparities
PSF Community Center has hosted flu and COVID 19 vaccine clinics as needed.

Building Community
Each year, PSF Community Center hosts a variety of events that bring our diverse neighborhood together including holiday celebrations, cultural celebrations ,neighborhood barbeques, movie nights, and more.

The Center exists because of the extraordinary effort by the neighborhood, along with the support of numerous organizations, foundations, businesses, members of the community and local and state government and elected officials.
