The Allen Neighborhood Center invites people to celebrate the $ 11 million renovation

The Allen Neighborhood Center has served Lansing’s eastern neighborhood for 23 years, but now after three years of work and $ 11 million in renovations, community center officials are inviting people to recreate the service at the new Allen Place.

Allen Place is an extension of the Allen Neighborhood Center, which includes 21 mixed-income apartments, a food co-op, an incubator and accelerator kitchen for aspiring food entrepreneurs, and a health clinic.

The aim of the enlargement was to make health, food and housing resources more accessible to all who need assistance, especially people on the east side.

In addition to providing resources, Allen Neighborhood Center Director Joan Nelson hopes the new space will help create a stronger sense of community on the East Side.
