Pueblo Community College departure brings change to Commons Building

Nonprofit hub creates community
Mary Mullen, a GED math teacher at the Adult Education Center, talks with students Sophia Blanchard and Elmer Argueta during class on Monday in the Commons Building. Before partnering with Conservation Legacy to buy the building, the Adult Education Center was renting space in a building that had all kinds of problems, including rooms without heat and inadequate parking, said Teresa Malone, executive director of the education center. The center also faced the constant threat of being displaced. “We feel really stable. It was an excellent move,” she said.
In addition to Conservation Legacy and the Adult Education Center, owners of The Commons, the current tenants include Pueblo Community College, Volunteers of America Back Home Program, the State Historical Fund, Compañeros, University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work, Sexual Assault Services Organization, Pathways to Independence, Southwestern Colorado Area Health Education, Alternative Horizons and the Alzheimer’s Association.
