A Client’s Words

“What an amazing blessing St. Francis House has been to me and my children! We thank you so much. Without your assistance with my move in cost, clothing, and things for our household, our transition out of homelessness into our own apartment wouldn’t have been possible.”
Thank you and God Bless you all! – The Hill Family

Thanks so much for helping the Raydeen Family with their rent. They have been excellent renters for many years. May God continue to bless your organization.
– Sam R. (Landlord)

“Now is the time that we must “graduate” from St. Francis House. Today will be our last visit. We want to extend our gratitude. With your support, we have been able to stretch our resources. We have warm clothes, warm bedding, and some little things that make our home feel…more like a home. Please keep our family in your prayers and we attempt to stand independently and begin to give back. You have meant so much to us”
 – The Davis Family
