I first got involved in the mid-1990s when a client and St. Francis House Board member recommended me for a Board position. I was excited to get involved as I learned about the mission of St. Francis House and the many guests it serves. My Jesuit education at The College of Holy Cross instilled in me the mantra “Men and Women for Others”.
During my time at St. Francis House, I have seen the organization change the lives of many people in need. Whether providing basic services like food and clothing to job training, mental health services, housing, and healthcare, St. Francis House is there to meet our guest’s needs. Having an impact and supporting the mission of St. Francis House has been very fulfilling, especially looking towards the future as we continue to see a great need for our most critical services.
