After leasing the building for $1 a year for a decade, the Concord Center Association purchased the Communal Building from the Jewish Federation and the building becomes the Concord Center.

The Concord Center continues to be used by the Southside Jewish community with an estimated 10% of those using the center being Jewish.

“The Center is a non-sectarian, interracial social group work agency serving all in the neighborhood through a program of recreation and informal education.”
