The current JCA building at 57 Ashmont St. was purchased in 1985 as a temporary center and, after 30 years, is inadequate for current programs and expanding participation. In December 2014 the JCA purchased the St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church at 1342 Congress St. from the Archdiocese of Portland, and demolition began in November 2015 to clear the land to make way for the new JCA campus. The churchstone along with several buckets of rubble have been put aside for church members to claim as mementos. Also, a time capsule was discovered and given to the church.
This project was completed by The Cecil Group and Harriman prior to the merger.
