Member Testimonial:

“Living and working in a city, I see homelessness on display every day. It’s a major issue in our world today, and St. Francis House is a well-conceived organization that combats this issue the correct way –offering food, clothing, affordable housing, mentorship, and providing avenues for securing employment and in some cases, higher education. This is the type of help that can end someone’s homelessness permanently. Joining the Emerging Leaders group has allowed me to contribute to this cause and have a meaningful impact. It’s also a great opportunity to make connections with other young professionals in the Boston area. If you’re looking to make a difference in society and meet new people, joining the Emerging Leaders group is a fun way to begin doing so.”

– Sean, Emerging Leader at St. Francis House
