In 2022, St. Francis Center served more guests than ever before. While we are overwhelmed with pride for what we were able to achieve – this is a bittersweet feeling for us. Witnessing firsthand the increased number of people walking through our doors in need of services is never a good feeling. However, we are honored that our community knows they can come to us in their time of need and trust us to help alleviate some of their burdens.
We are especially proud of our small staff of 13, who worked tirelessly this year to not only continue our hunger-relief programs and keep up with the increased demand for our services but also worked hard to expand our service offerings to further the health and well-being of our community.
We expanded current programming and added new programming, including community art programs, youth programs, as well as solidified partnerships with health and mental health services.
Take a look at our numbers below, and know that your support was a big reason for our success. Together, we are stronger than we are alone. Whether you donated, volunteered your time, organized a drive, or even followed us on social media, thank you. We’ve built a community here on Hope Street – and our most important goal is to build this community among those who serve and those who are served. Thank you for being part of our family here on Hope Street. Together, we’re Serving Hope.
Thank you for helping us go above and beyond our 2022 goals. Have a joyous New Year!
