Today, the House continues to serve 7,000 – 8,000 youth and adults each year.

The Taylor Technologies Foundation

The Taylor Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation created to provide Taylor Technologies, along with its associates and friends, the opportunity to give back. Our vision starts here at home, where we assist local ministries like the Helping Up Mission in Baltimore. The foundation also works with Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian relief and evangelism organization, to pack and assemble gift boxes for children through their program Operation Christmas Child. Someday we hope to join with our manufacturing partners to focus on international safe drinking water.
