The Place was a Christian group that met in inner-city Chicago to help people on the streets come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The people that ran the place were all raptured, leaving those that attended but never became believers behind. Its attendees eventually became believers and continued to live in Chicago even after it was devastated. although they moved underground for their safety when they heard that the city was irradiated. Its current group leader, Enoch Dumas, revealed the truth to Chloe Williams when she found out about The Place in "Desecration". They and the Tribulation Force members left Chicago prior to its destruction by a nuclear missile in "The Remnant", but the ministry continued elsewhere in Illinois to reach out to people who like them were down on their luck.
