Friends Center welcomed back Friends Publishing Corporation, publisher of Friends Journal magazine, the QuakerSpeak video series, and the outreach site Quaker.org, as a tenant, after more than two decades elsewhere. Providing office space to Friends Publishing is squarely in line with Friends Center’s mission to provide a strong Quaker presence in Center City Philadelphia, Pa., and to be a place of communal support for Friends organizations.
In addition, Friends Center’s work to build a new facility for Friends Child Care Center—founded on site over 40 years ago by staff of American Friends Service Committee and Philadelphia Yearly Meeting as well as members of Central Philadelphia Meeting—was scheduled to be complete by October. The new facility will enable the center to serve even more children with quality childcare in a convenient location with access to outdoor play space in the courtyard.
