Brother Francis Shelter Clothing Room

Brother Francis Shelter is an emergency shelter for men and women in Anchorage without a home. We serve the homeless with dignity, care, compassion and with an emphasis on moving our guests toward self-sufficiency. Below you will find items the program is currently in need of.

When donating please remember donations should be new or gently used. These items will not only support those in need but also empower them. Thank you!
