Construction Project

The time has come. On April 1, 2019 crews arrived to begin demolition of the five houses that will be the site of the new St. Francis House facility.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the new facility is scheduled Saturday, May 4. Construction will begin on the south wing and main office, kitchen and dining area. This phase of the project is scheduled to be completed by the end of December 2019.

When that phase is finished, the main shelter will be demolished and construction will begin on the north wing. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by July 2020.

Parking at St. Francis House

During the construction of our new facility, we have adjusted our parking situation. The graphic to the right illustrates where different groups may park when they visit St. Francis House.

Donation Drop Off:
The area in front of the main entrance (highlighted in red) is a short-term parking area reserved for individuals who are dropping off donations. The area is inset from the street. Please parallel park in this area.

Volunteer Parking:
During Phase 2 of our construction project there are four areas where volunteers and guess may park when visiting the St. Francis House. There is a limited number of diagonal parking spaces in front of the building along N. Sherman Ave. On street parking is available across N. Sherman Ave. In addition, on street parking is available on the south side of E. Austin St between Cliff Ave. and N. Sherman Ave. and along the north side of E. 8th St next to St. Francis House.

E. Austin St. between N. Sherman Ave. and N Van Eps Ave. is closed to the public during Phase 2 of construction.

We ask everyone visiting the St. Francis House to please be respectful of our neighbors and to not park in front of our neighbors' property.

Thank you for your cooperation during this time.
