What is the glue that holds a community together? For St. Francis Neighborhood Center, it is the attitude that it takes a village to build a better future.
St. Francis Neighborhood Center is located at Whitelock Street and Linden Avenue in Baltimore’s Reservoir Hill community. Its mission is to end generational poverty through education. To meet that goal, the nonprofit offers free resources for families, from job readiness workshops to financial planning classes.
Tomorrow St. Francis will break ground on a $4 million dollar renovation and expansion, tripling the number of families they can serve. Last August we spoke with Christi Green, who’s been executive director since 2012, as well as Inge Harris, whose four children attend St. Francis, and her son, Emmanuel, who began participating at St. Frances in elementary school.
