The Community Space was made possible by a grant from Best of Clarksville, a local organization that provided donations for local and national charitable groups for 19 years before retiring the program in early 2020. Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County was one of the last nonprofit organizations to receive funding from Best of Clarksville.

The Community Space will serve as a separate area within the ReStore for art programs, youth mentoring, nonprofit meetings, and much more. Further information about use of the space will be provided in the coming months.
