Community Rooms & Outdoor Space

PSF Community Center provides 2,300 square feet of free meeting and event space to nonprofits and community groups.  The Community Center manages two large meeting rooms– one that includes a full kitchen– for free use by local social and civic nonprofits. The lawn adjacent to the lobby is also available to our tenant organizations as well as community groups seeking outdoor space for meetings or small gatherings. Individuals and other entities may use the space for a small fee.
