If my assumption was correct, Have a look at this page and see if something there matches your requirements:

Without having an answer, let me see if I understand.

You are looking for a "cloud service" that provides the tools required for community building

e.g.
Organizational web presence (Home page)
File sharing, 
Bulleting boards/discussion groups, 
Wiki
Member blogs,
etc?

Fairly equivalent to what we have at kwlug.org but supported "in the cloud" so you don't have to bother maintaining the system and servers involved.

Is this correct?
