A Veteran came in needing food and information about our Veteran programs.
A disabled client came in for food and assistance with medical bills.
One of our homeless neighbors came to get a bus pass, but didn’t have a referral. SFH gave him a bus token to get to a referring agency and and another then back to SFH to get his pass. He also got some snacks and a drink for the trip.

Thanks to our donors, we were able to see more than a dozen people with food, clothing, rent, and medical costs. Just a typical hour at St. Francis House!
