Help us spread cheer this holiday season!

At St. Francis House, ensuring that the holiday season is bright, welcoming, and warm for our guests is a top priority. The holidays can be a difficult time for many of the guests we serve, but your generosity can make the season brighter for those experiencing homelessness this holiday.

We ensure our residents in our supportive Next Step Housing and our students in the Sullivan Family Moving Ahead Program feel the love they deserve on Christmas every year – stay tuned for updates on this year’s Holiday Gift drive.
