4Boston: The largest weekly service organization at Boston College.
Members commit to serve at a partner organization for four hours a week, for the entire academic year, and also engage in group reflection on community, social justice, and spirituality.
St. Francis House has been a proud partner for over a decade, welcoming cohorts of 13-17 students annually.
Our 4Boston partners quickly become familiar faces around the building, especially in our kitchen and Fresh Threads department, as they provide crucial support to our staff and guests on a weekly basis.
Many participants here at St. Francis House find the experience so meaningful, renewing their placement service for all four years of college. This Fall we have six graduating seniors in the group, including Eller, who was filmed in action last spring. Naturally, he is back at St. Francis House for one last year!
