About the Center

The Friendship Center exists to build relationships in this poverty impacted community by offering empowerment through education, development and the transformative love of Christ for kids, and adults.

The Center has been in existence for nearly 35 years and has been a fixture in this particular location, in the MLK neighborhood of Des Moines, for more than 20 years. Begun through the ministry of the Baptist Convention of Iowa, the Center now exists as a nonprofit organization.

The Center is sustained financially through the support of some local church partnerships as well as a multitude of individual donors. Though the Baptist Convention of Iowa no longer functions as the sole support for the Center’s ministries, it remains a financial partner to this day.

The offering of your time, giftedness or financial support of this ministry would be much appreciated.
