An agency that has worked to prevent isolation among residents of Portland’s Old Town has hit its silver anniversary.  

The Maybelle Center for Community — once known as the Macdonald Center — was established by Holy Cross Father Richard Berg. In the late 1980s, Father Berg was assigned as pastor of the Catholic parish in Old Town, home to a large part of Portland’s homeless population. Father Berg, a trained psychologist, told staff and parishioners that loneliness and isolation intensify the problems of homelessness and that community might be the way out.
