New Facility

On December 20, 2019, our guests moved into our new facility. Construction on the new facility began in April of 2019 and will be completed in two stages. Stage 1 consisted of the south residential wing, offices, kitchen and dining areas, Stage 2 will be the north residential wing, which will sit where the original building served as our home since 1987. The entire project is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2020.

Once finished, the new facility will accommodate 120 guests (60 male, 60 female). In addition, the new facility features a commercial kitchen, two conference rooms, a game and fitness room, a meditation room and staff offices.

Multi-Family Housing/Quad

In 2009, we launched a capital campaign to build a new family unit capable of housing up to four families. The building was able to open its doors in December of 2009 in thanks to our generous neighbors, businesses, and the Helmsley Foundation.

Tri-Plex

On February 18th, 2009, we opened the Tri-Plex in answer to the still growing need of transitional housing for families in Sioux Falls. The Tri-Plex, located only a few blocks away from our main shelter, houses up to three families with children. The building was transferred to the St. Francis House from another non-profit agency upon request of the City of Sioux Falls.

Main Shelter

On March 15, 1987, we welcomed those needing a warm and safe place to stay into our home. The late Bishop Paul Dudley began operations using the old Little Flower Convent. First Lutheran Church, through Pastor David Holm, provided the operational funds to run the operation. Together the two worked side-by-side to make the St. Francis House, an ecumenical ministry for the homeless, a reality. Today, we still use the old Carmelite monastery as our main shelter housing single males and females.
