Gladden Community House is a settlement house located in the heart of Franklinton. Since 1905, they have been an essential support system and engine for change in the west side, providing education and recreation programs, emergency assistance, advocacy, and support for individuals, families, and groups.


We’re inviting the community to join Besa and NBC4 on Saturday, July 13th to support Franklinton senior homeowners with Gladden Community House. Nearly 1,000 local seniors who want to live independently without being isolated participate in Gladden's Senior Citizens Outreach program. Anyone of any age is welcome to volunteer—including families & kids. There are limited spots.


Volunteers will provide outdoor beautification to the homes of Elaine & Betty. Activities will include planting flowers, trimming bushes, mulching, mowing, weeding, raking, trash clean up and yard waste removal.


  • Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Please dress for the weather and in comfortable clothes that can get dirty.
  • Volunteers are encouraged to bring sunscreen, since you will be outdoors. 
  • Closed toe shoes are required. 
  • We suggest volunteers bring a bottle of water to keep hydrated.

  • Street parking is available. Please read all the street signs carefully!
  • This event is ADA accessible. 
  • Court-appointed volunteering: At this time, we can not accept court-appointed requests
