Baldwin Mission

Feed. Clothe. Educate. Empower

​A comprehensive approach to addressing poverty

The Baldwin Center is a comprehensive human service agency located in Pontiac, Michigan.  Its mission is to feed, clothe, educate and empower the men, women and children of the Pontiac community. Baldwin provides services to fulfill basic needs and provide tools for children and adults to gain economic self-sufficiency and personal wholeness.  The center is a safe place where bellies are filled, where children can play and learn without fear of violence, and where people can recover their dignity and find respect.  We are a low barrier, high impact agency seeking to assist all those that come to us with needs.

Today, Baldwin’s mix of programs include the Family Kitchen which provides meals seven days a week, with over 70,000 meals being served last year alone; the clothing closet which provides used clothing to approximately 100 individuals a day; and the Youth Learning Lab and Summer Program that services over 100 each year by offering personalized academic support, a warm meal and engaging enrichment opportunities such as creative writing, engineering, and team sports.  The Center also provides laundry facilities, commodity distribution to low-income seniors, health screenings, healthy living classes, household items for fire victims, GED preparation classes, a holiday gift and food program, case management services and homeless prevention financial assistance for those facing evictions or utility shutoffs. In 2010 Baldwin expanded its urban garden program to include a 1,440 square foot hoophouse that provides year-round growing opportunities and integration with the Youth Programs.

The Baldwin Center works with other community agencies to advocate for our clients and find positive solutions, and adapt to the changing needs of the community.
