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.


Join Besa and Gladden Community House to support National Night Out in Franklinton. Neighborhoods in Columbus are joining forces with communities throughout the nation for an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Residents will enjoy a fun night out with neighbors, police officers and community leaders to generate support for anti-crime efforts and build neighborhood unity. Besa volunteers will help in a variety of activity stations, such as: raffle and backpack giveaway, ballon station, and clean-up.
