Mission Statement

The mission of St. Francis Center is to serve poor families and homeless individuals in the Garment District area of downtown Los Angeles by: serving the poor in the immediate necessities of food and clothing; addressing the systemic causes of poverty through advocacy and other means; and educating, empowering, and accompanying the poor to give them the tools necessary to build better lives and neighborhoods

Description

Saint Francis Center is a multi-service community outreach center founded in 1972 by Father Hugh Noonan, OFM (Order of Franciscan Minors) in response to the growing numbers of poor, needy families, seniors and homeless individuals in the Garment District neighborhood surrounding downtown Los Angeles. The Center began as social ministry project of Saint Joseph Church, a Roman Catholic parish under the sponsorship of the Franciscan Minors of California-Santa Barbara Province and supported by the local chapter of Secular Franciscans.

Would you recommend St. Francis Center?

I'm very likely to recommend this organization to a friend because I feel it is always important to help those in need and most importantly the experience, the effect it can have on you mentally. I feel it will be a mind opening experience that makes you want to get others involved to help.
