St. Francis House

The mission of the St. Francis House is: to move people from homelessness to hope. We do this by offering a variety of services intended to assist our guests with long-term self-sufficiency. First and foremost, we provide individuals with a warm and safe place to stay. We also assist guests in locating other community resources that best meet their individual needs and issues. Our Program Coordinators provide comprehensive case management. This includes assistance with obtaining and maintaining employment with benefits, securing transportation, enrolling children in school and/or child care, managing money and other general life skills. It also includes guest referrals for everything from addiction to health care to GED services. For example, our guests are directed to self-help meetings such as Alcoholic Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Gamblers Anonymous to maintain their sobriety. They are also referred to agencies in our community that specialize in mental health counseling, HIV/AIDS, child care and health services. Any guest that does not have a GED or high school diploma is referred to agencies that assist them in obtaining their GED. Ultimately, it is this continuum of service that empowers our guests to move away from homelessness and safely toward a future of hope.
