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.

Updated Usage Guidelines

As supporting our community is at the core of our mission, and maintaining public health is a priority, we have set new guidelines for the use of the community rooms at PSF Community Center.

New Balance Community Room

Until further notice, the New Balance Community Room, and the Allston Brighton Community Room (formerly known as the Little Sprouts Room) will be available only to nonprofit and civic groups. Until further notice, these rooms will not be available for one-time reservations (parties, fundraisers, etc).

Groups interested in utilizing the community rooms must submit a request to PSF Community Center.

The parking lot at the PSF Community Center and the lawn adjacent to the lobby is available to our tenant organizations as well as community groups seeking outdoor space for meetings or small gatherings. Tenant organizations and community groups who are interested in utilizing the outdoor space must submit a request to the PSF Community Center. Community groups who are not tenant organizations will not be permitted to use sound amplification or public address systems.

COVID-19 Precautions

Prior to hosting an event in the community rooms, parking lot, or outdoor space, organizations will review the following rules, and is responsible to confirm that all persons comply with the rules.

At this time, face masks are recommended at PSF Community Center. Organizations utilizing the community rooms can decide whether or not to require face masks during meetings and events they hold in the community rooms.

As part of our standard operations, we employ professional cleaners, and we have increased the frequency of cleanings. In addition, we expanded our cleaning service to include disinfecting surfaces in our common areas and community rooms like doorknobs, handrails, tables and chairs. We ask everyone who uses the Community Center to support our efforts to keep the facility clean to reduce the risk of infection. At the conclusion of an event, organizations are required to thoroughly clean and disinfect the surfaces of tables and chairs they have used. Cleaning wipes will be provided.

The CDC recommends that you engage in the following precautions to aid in preventing the spread of cold, flu, and other illnesses that transmit this time of year:
• If you feel sick, please stay home and rest. This is the best way to avoid spreading any illness and make sure you get the rest you need to recover.
• Please wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Use Alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available. (There are sinks in the restrooms on the lower level, 1st floor and 2nd floor. Hand sanitizer stations are also available next to the elevator on the lower level, 1st floor and 2nd floor).
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue. Throw it away immediately and wash your hands.

All organizations and all persons utilizing the PSF Community Center acknowledge that the use of the Community Center is optional, and all persons fully understand the potential risks of using the Community Center.

We will continue to monitor and follow any updates and recommendations from the CDC and Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
