Getting It All Together
December 28, 1972
The Ann Arbor Community Center, plagued with housing problems in each of the last two Decembers, begins to pull itself together at its new location at 603 E. William St. Last December the city's four youth-oriented service organizations were forced into the cold, literally, when a boiler broke down. This year the problem was much more severe when the center's headquarters on W. Washington Street burned down. In the photo at left, three unidentified center volunteers, supervised by Gail Johnson on the right, begin setting up operations at the new center which will house the Community Center Project, Drug Help Inc., and Ozone House. The Free Peoples Clinic will be operating from the University Hospital, and services will be offered there on Jan. 3, not yesterday as previously reported by university officials. Both the E. William location and the U-M hospital facilities are only temporary housing while a search continues for permanent headquarters.
