St. Francis House would not be able to accomplish its mission without the help of the community at large. Meeting the everyday needs of the homeless and hungry of Alachua County is a real challenge. Much of what we do would not be possible without the dedication of our staff and volunteers, and it’s very gratifying knowing how much people appreciate the services we provide.

But you make a difference, and without your monetary donations all our work would not be possible. While money goes a long way to help us carry out our mission, material donations are equally important. Here is a list of our current needs and thank you for everything you do to help us fulfill our mission at St. Francis House.
