Since its founding 110 years ago, Baden Street has continuously operated programs and offered services that help it to fulfill its core mission-to identify and eliminate the causes of poverty and to reduce the level of negative social problems associated with being poor and disadvantaged. As the passage of time has demanded, the character and delivery of Baden's programs have adapted and changed, and they continue to be reevaluated to insure that they positively address the needs of our neighborhood's residents.

This program also provides learning through team building exercises and survival skills development. Project BASE offers after school activities for youth, including youth with special needs. Students participate in recreational, home work assistance, Supplemental Education Services and prevention workshops. Participants are served hot, nutritional meals through the Kids Café'.
