Franklin Community Center, Inc.
Franklin Community Center is a non-profit human service agency in Saratoga Springs, New York, that has been providing basic supplies and services to less fortunate individuals and families in our area for 30 years. Serving more than 6,000 people annually, we provide efficient and effective services to promote healthy lifestyles and positive changes, always holding on to our philosophy: “send people out the door with whatever they came in looking for.”
The unique and comprehensive approach of Franklin Community Center fosters a sense of family for those in need, without the discomfort of bureaucratic paperwork and prying questions. We offer guidance and advocacy, while providing a safe, comfortable and non-judgmental atmosphere.
Because we rely heavily upon community donations, fundraisers and corporate sponsorships to supplement our annual budget, we pride ourselves on creating sustainable relationships, leaving our donors reassured by our positive reputation and fiscally conservative approach and our consumers touched by our empathy, care and concern.
The programs and services we provide include, but are not limited to: safe and affordable housing (17 efficiency apartments for single, low-income individuals, plus two larger apartments over our distribution center); a food pantry; free clothing and furniture distribution; advocacy and referral information; holiday assistance; and an after school youth prevention program called Project Lift.
