The David Brower Center advocates for the beauty, diversity and ecological integrity of Earth. We accomplish this mission through a distinctive combination of permanent infrastructure and ongoing programs in a unique institution that informs, inspires, and connects people and resources. We house 20+ environmental nonprofits and social enterprises in LEED Platinum offices, and host over 350 events per year in our various green event spaces which require clients to abide by low-waste principles. We offer environmental art exhibitions and public programs to foster a more engaged a community. Our Hazel Wolf Gallery, which is free and open to the public six days per week, is the site of three rotating exhibitions which feature the works of established artists as well as local high school students who explore the use of art for environmental activism.

The Nonprofit Village was the first multi-tenant nonprofit center in Maryland. Our mission is to strengthen the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations by providing educational and development programs, essential capacity building services, back-office operations,and opportunities for collaboration. We do this all within an affordable shared office space, where we house 37 nonprofit organizations and serve more than 300 others through development programs. The benefits and services provided to members help them reduce essential operating and administrative costs, allowing these important groups to focus more keenly on their mission of providing vital services to our community. We have become a first-stop shop for a variety of nonprofits and associations that need to know the resources available and be connected to the expertise that is critical to expanding their operations. With options for coworking and offices leases, we can meet the needs of nonprofits at every point of their life-cycle.

When founder Dr. Kay Glasser began gathering support for the Center in 1985, nonprofit centers were an obscure concept. In our Gulf Coast region of Florida, it was a completely new idea; untried and untested. But as she reflected many years later, “A strong ideal can capture an imagination and control a life.” Through sheer tenacity and belief in her vision, she gained the support of Alex and Betty Schoenbaum, along with municipal and community partners - and managed to convince a consortium of financial institutions that this was a viable concept that just makes sense for our human services community. The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center opened its doors in 1990, and 30 years later, we are still going strong. We know that human service providers thrive when they work together in a supportive system. We are the hub of that collaborative system, leading to success for those who are making our community a better place.

Saranac_Building-1200x801.jpg

Our mission is to host, inspire, and catalyze social change in the Spokane region. We create and maintain a beautiful collection of brick and mortar environments that enhance connectivity and human dignity. We have a campus of six buildings, starting with the Community Building our pioneer restoration project on Main Avenue. It provides beautiful, affordable office and gathering spaces to local nonprofits and serves as hub for community action. The old Saranac Hotel provides more affordable office and gathering spaces for nonprofit and businesses alike and operates on some of the cleanest and greenest technologies in the Inland Northwest. The member-owned Main Market Co-op benefits Spokane's people, environment, and robust local food system and the Saranac Commons is an open-concept food and retail accelerator with informal meeting, gathering, and study spaces for public use. In all of our spaces we hope to serve the whole person. That means having access to good healthy food, art, welcoming spaces to work, and generally building an inclusive community that knows each other and cares for one another. To that end, we host meals, happy hours, professional development series, and parties regularly to help support the relationships here and to build new ones.

Centrally located within Sutton, a growing community within Georgina, the Town of Georgina purchased the decommissioned Sutton Public School in 2011. Since then, the Town's multi-million dollar investment towards the renovation of Phase 1 of The Link finished in July 2015. 15,000 sq.ft. now houses a multi-sector service centre that addresses various community challenges, provides a unique collaboration platform and, because of Georgina's geographic size, has reduced the difficulty of accessing programs and services now all in one location. The Link has multiple tenant organizations operating full-time, short-term rental & programming spaces such as a large Event Hall, state of the art Commercial Teaching Kitchen, two meeting rooms and a beautiful 6 acre backyard located centrally in the town.

Bronson Centre is a 45,000 ft2 community facility, nestled into the heart of downtown Ottawa, the capital of Canada. We have up to 40 permanent, not-for-profit tenants, resident in our building at any one time. On a day rental basis we have served 100’s of associations and cultural groups for almost 25 years. Our charity was founded in 1996, the same year that we were invited to re-purpose the use of an old high school. As a solid, revenue positive organization (and wholesome example of a healthy social enterprise !) we purchased the building in 2017. Our commitment is to enhance and strengthen our role as a dynamic shared space facility for the next 25 years. Our core mission is to provide affordable rents and administrative and cultural hub services to those who in turn serve the needy, the poor, and arts and cultural communities of our region.

The 7 Corners Collaborative Building opened in 2018, and is now serving as a hub for services for individuals experiencing disability. The building is owned by Community Vision and serves as its headquarters. However, there are five other nonprofits that provide an array of services to the disability community - ensuring that visitors to the building will leave with more information and resources than when they entered. The 7CCB was also designed using the principles of Universal Design, creating a the most barrier-free space possible.

As Atlanta's premier gathering space for the LGBTQ community since 2008, The Rush Center provides a sense of "home" and offers connections to resources throughout the state. The sign on the building lets people outside know that we're always here, and the open door acts as a reminder to our community that we're exactly that: a community. Over 100 hundred organizations use the center each year for board meetings and events, and almost twenty of those groups have permanent office space. Visit on any given day, and you may encounter discussion panels, trainings, support groups or calls for political advocacy.
