Mission Statement

Since 1972, St. Francis Center has provided relief and support to homeless and extremely low-income individuals and families in Los Angeles. Much more than a soup kitchen or a food pantry, we offer a unique range of services to sustain and empower those in need. Welcoming all with joy, dignity and compassion, we dedicate ourselves every day to Serving Hope in our community.


In response to recent developments regarding the spread of COVID-19, also referred to as coronavirus, St. Francis Center is modifying program operations effective immediately.

We are still accepting volunteers andstill remain committed to serving our guests in need and to continue to be a center of support and hope. Our priority is to take proactive steps to protect the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, staff, and supporters. You can read more about our modified programs here (

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Danielle at

Super friendly staff and co-volunteers. There is a sense of community between the staff and volunteers among the people that come to 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.

I would strongly recommend this noble organization because I have only heard an abundance of positive reviews as well as praises.
