I've said it before, but I use DokuWiki and have been very happy with it.
I'm using it for a help wiki, but it could easily serve as a group home 
And without all the fluff of a big CMS also.
Note that I am running mine in anonymous mode, and that security and 
user account are available.
Has some nice stuff like code highlighting also.
