It takes a village to solve the problem of homelessness, and St. Francis House is grateful for every agency, nonprofit, school, and business that helps our staff meet the complex needs of the poor and homeless.

Each of the organizations below has made a deep and lasting impact on the men and women we serve, and the community at large. We couldn’t do our important work without them.
