Welcome

At Friends Center, the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) reaches out to serve the city, the region, and the world.


We invite you to be part of Friends Center’s community of organizations working for peace and justice.  Come for a day to use our conference spaces for your organization, rent office space in Friends Center’s LEED Platinum office building, or visit for a few minutes in the quiet refuge of our Quaker meetinghouse and scenic plaza.

What a lovely day to be in love.

What a day we had!

We cannot thank you enough for the extra effort to figure out the best indoor plan. It worked perfectly. The food prominent and immediately consumed. The “quiet room” filled with folks with deep conversations. The band and dancing going all out. The video feed went off without a hitch.

The Friends Center staff was helpful and joyful with us. It couldn’t have been better. You made our day wonderful. Thank you.

The Friends Center is prominent in my spiel within the Global Philadelphia Association about what makes Philly unique and outstanding among other great cities. You guys provide a great and much needed “truckstop” for social action and civic engagement… I have lived in many places, and can honestly say that Friends Center is a most unique and city-defining entity.
