Franklin Community Center

“We Are Making A Difference”—Serving Less-Fortunate Individuals and Families, In and Around Saratoga, for Over 30 Years!


Franklin Community Center, is a non-profit human service agency located at 10 Franklin Street in Saratoga Springs, New York.  Our unique, grass-roots and non-bureaucratic approach has been empowering others in our area for over three decades by offering advocacy, basic necessities and services in an effort to promote healthy lifestyles and positive changes.

Franklin Community Center’s programs (Project Lift, Free Store, Food Pantry, Referrals) follow the Saratoga Springs City School District winter weather schedule. 2-hour delay will have our programs opening at 11:00 a.m. and a closing will close our programs.

Looking to donate your gently-used, in-season clothing but can’t make our donation day on Tuesdays?  On the first Saturday of each month, all Cudney’s locations in Saratoga and Wilton will feature bins where they will accept clothing on the first Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  So, if weekday drop-offs don’t work for you, mark your calendars for the first Saturday of the month, and FCC and Cudney’s will make sure your items get to our “free store” at 101 Washington Street, which is open to the public for “shopping” weekly.  Keep it local!  Click here for a list of locations.
