Food, shelter and other fundamental needs at St. Francis House with support from Bank of America

St. Francis House is thrilled to receive support from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation this past year, enabling us to invest in our basic needs programs and services. This funding has allowed St. Francis House to help improve our guests’ economic mobility through a multitude of services we provide every day in the St. Francis House Day Shelter at 39 Boylston Street.  

Everyone eats at St. Francis House 

St. Francis House serves a nutritious lunch and breakfast to everyone who walks through our doors – we never turn anybody away. This past year, we served 5,903 unique individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty in the Commonwealth. From providing nutritious food and daytime shelter to showers, access to medical care, clean and seasonally appropriate clothing, and mail services – we connect our guests with all of the resources they need in one building.   

We work to ensure that those experiences, day after day, build on one another and create a solid foundation for people to transform their lives. Once their hunger is alleviated and their basic needs are met, our guests are able to better prepare for the next step on their pathway to stability, such as counseling services, participation in our Sullivan Family Moving Ahead Program or exploring our new job training program through the Urban Hound at St. Francis House.

Providing access to basic needs for vulnerable populations is critical to strengthen our community, enabling us to create a bridge between addressing the most present, basic needs of today, to imagining a brighter future tomorrow for our guests.
