Rebuilding Lives

365 Days a Year

Located in the heart of downtown Boston, each day we welcome up to 500 individuals experiencing homelessness. Our refuge, recovery, employment and housing services overlap and build on one another to provide our guests with continuous and comprehensive support.

Welcome to

St. Francis House

Inside our doors we enable individuals to meet their basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter. We transform lives using a holistic approach to understanding and addressing behavioral health, housing and employment needs.

Our Approach

Our integrated approach is unique among service providers. It allows us to eliminate fragmented services that force individuals to separate and isolate single problems that are, in fact, deeply connected.
