Following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968, the Franciscan Center has made it its mission to provide emergency assistance and supportive outreach to persons who are economically disadvantaged. We do our best to help everyone in our community to realize their self-worth and dignity as people of God. For over 50 years, we have supported those in need in Baltimore City, and we will continue to do so for as long as our community needs us. We create a safe place for people in need to reach out, where they can feel respected and supported. We would not be able to support those in need without donations from people like you. Donation money goes to feeding the hungry, providing hygiene kits, creating and executing special events for our guests year-round, and more. This Juneteenth, the Franciscan Center and GivePulse would like to “Call you to Action” to step up and support members in your community.
