Gladden's Mission

Gladden Community House is a settlement house serving Franklinton and its surrounding neighborhoods. We are a United Way affiliated non-profit agency providing education and recreation programs, emergency assistance, and advocacy and support for individuals, families, and groups. We strive to strengthen the well-being of Franklinton's children, families and community and build a thriving equitable neighborhood.

The Tradition Marches On...

For 13 years, The Best Damn Band in the Land (TBDBITL) has teamed up with Gladden Community House to host Marching for More, an evening of celebration to raise awareness and vital funds for Gladden’s work on behalf of children and families in Franklinton. Partnering through tradition, music and community service, this annual event with The Ohio State University Marching Band has helped Gladden raise over $1.7 million dollars in support of Gladden’s life-impacting work and mission.
