During these very challenging and difficult times, the St. Francis House is focused on not only meeting the needs of our guests and staff, but also our entire community. Our doors continue to be open to our 80 single individuals and 5 families who are seeking a warm and safe home to live, while also focusing on following guidelines for the prevention of COVID-19.
We are thankful for our new home and the ability to have more space for our guests to follow social distancing, but we are also taking additional steps to secure everyone’s safety. Our entire building is cleaned twice a day as well as high traffic areas being sanitized on a more frequent basis. Our guests have all been informed of proper hand washing, are encouraged to remain in our home as much as possible, and to report immediately any signs or symptoms to staff.
We have amazing employees dedicated to serving our guests and assisting them to remain calm and to keeping them busy. Many of our guests have been impacted by a reduction in hours or being laid off due to our community crisis, so employees are working to provide them support and encouragement.
Ways to Support our Guests and Employees:
There is no greater time than now, to stand up strong to come together to support others during the crisis facing our community!
