Petition in Support of the Renovation and Expansion of St. Francis Neighborhood Center
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!
I am excited to show my support for SB0419 - Creation of a State Debt - Baltimore City - St. Francis Neighborhood Center. This funding will help with the renovation & expansion of St. Francis Neighborhood Center (SFNC) located at 2405 Linden Avenue. It will address a lengthy wait list for youth programming, dire renovations that are needed in the old brownstone, more functionality & community driven programming, such as a recreation space/multi purpose room.
SFNC has existed since 1963 to raise awareness & bring change to the lives of those served in our community of Reservoir Hill, in West Baltimore. The mission of the Center is committed to ending generational poverty through education, inspiring self-esteem, self-improvement, & strengthening connections to the community. They were founded to serve a growing segment of our community in need of inaccessible services, & all programs/services are driven by the community. SFNC continues to grow with the help of community members, donors, partners, & volunteers who make the mission possible.
In an average month, they serve over 500 adults, youth, & families & in 2017 over 5,200 unique individuals. The capital campaign for the Center will more than double the number of persons served in the neighborhood with their quality programs. SFNC is an integral support system in Reservoir Hill & a model for the City.
SFNC is asking for $500,000 to help reach their $4,000,000 goal. They are $130,000 away from their 50% mark. Once they reach $2,000,000, they have been invited to apply for a grant that can give up to 30% of the entire project budget (1.2M). The passing of this bond bill is critical to the project.
I am happy to present this letter of support of the Center’s Capital Campaign, as we work together to make Reservoir Hill & Baltimore a better place. Please help us reach our goal!
