2023 SFNC Community Resource Catalyst
St. Francis Neighborhood Center (SFNC) is a community center in West Baltimore. Our mission is to end generational poverty through education, inspiring self-esteem, self-improvement, and strengthening connections to the community. SFNC’s presence has served as a resource and catalyst for improving the lives of those in Reservoir Hill and making Baltimore a better place since 1963. The Community Resource Catalyst Project will take data from the survey administered to the community by the 21-22 VISTA and evaluate it for a clearer picture of the gaps in resources in the community. With this information the VISTA will work to connect with organizations to bring in desired programs and resources to SFNC. The VISTA will create an effective and easy way for community members and organizations to connect, gather resources and request space at SFNC. This project will serve as a tool to provide resources for individuals and families living below the poverty line. It will also increase community support and morale.
