Brother Francis Shelter Beds

A generous donation of fresh food, new or gently used household items, or professional services helps us ensure that the individuals and families we serve will are able to live comfortably and with dignity.

If giving to St. Francis House Food Pantry, Brother Francis Shelter, Homeless Family Services, Supportive Family Services, or RAIS, please note:

  • Donations must be new or gently used.
  • Donations are being accepted at St. Francis House Food Pantry at 3710 E 20th Ave.
  • Donors will receive an in kind slip before leaving.

There’s a new process for in-kind donation drop-offs at St. Francis House!

On July 17, St. Francis House created a new flow of traffic. Staff and volunteers will now be using the double-doors on the North side of the building to serve shoppers during pantry hours.

Monday – Thursday: 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Friday: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. 

If the wide double-doors are closed, please ring the doorbell to let staff know you are there.
