Fred's 25th Anniversary Dedication

Thursday, August 2, 2018
Drop in event from 3:00 - 6:30pm (dedication will be at 5:30pm)

Fred Howard has been a fixture on the staff at Arch Street Center since 1992. He is a big reason that members feel like they belong and are part of a family. His commitment to Arch Street is something that we think should be celebrated!

On August 2nd, we’re going to dedicate a space at the Center in Fred’s honor.

We would love for you to be part of this celebration!

Help us show Fred some love:

  • Send a (minimum) donation of $25 in Fred’s honor (we hope to raise at least $2,500)
  • Send a note of congratulations to Fred for his 25 years of service
  • Join us on August 2nd!


This is a drop-in (free!) event, however, the dedication will take place at 5:30pm!

Membership Dues

At $5.00 a year, Arch Street Center membership dues are a way for members to feel a sense of ownership of the Center, providing a hand up, not a hand out. But the fee doesn’t cover the cost of benefits that membership provides, just as the $1.00 per dinner does not cover the cost of the meal. Because many of our members would not be able to participate in activities, or even membership, if these fees were raised, contributions from community partners like you are crucial to our ability to provide our members with meals, activities, and a safe space to call their own.

Be a part of our mission

Arch Street Center has supported the recovery of adults living with serious mental illness since 1983.

Arch Street Center isn’t just a place to go… it’s a place to BELONG!

18,000 Meals

There is no more basic human need than that of sustenance. Arch Street Center provides two full meals, snacks, coffee, tea and cold beverages daily. Additionally we occasionally provide care packages of canned and packages goods for members in particular need. Many of our members experience food insecurity and periods of homelessness. Our food offerings are a vital resource and for some members may be the only meals they have on a given day. We estimate that over 45 members eat at the Center on a daily basis.
That’s nearly 18,000 meals per year!
