Allen Neighborhood Center Invites People to Celebrate $11 Million Renovation

The Allen Neighborhood Center has served East Lansing for 23 years, but now after three years of work and $11 million in renovations, community center officials are calling on people to re-acquaint themselves with services at Allen’s new location.

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

The aim of the expansion was to make it easier to access health, food, and housing resources for everyone who needed help, especially the people on the East Side.

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