NOTICE: The St. Francis House Board of Directors recently approved the return of volunteers, beginning, Monday, July 13. Volunteers will be allowed to come in and only serve meals. All other volunteer opportunities are still on hold. For the time being, meal serve volunteers must follow these guidelines:

  • Volunteers for meal serve only
  • Volunteers in groups no larger than 3 in order to practice social distancing
  • Volunteers must wear masks (Volunteers may bring their own masks or St. Francis House has cloth or disposable masks available)
  • Volunteers will have their temperatures checked upon arrival
  • Volunteers will be asked a series of CDC questions regarding health conditions
  • Volunteers must complete a liability waiver form before serving

Feel free to complete the volunteer interest form so Tom, our Volunteer Coordinator, can contact you and explain what volunteer opportunities are available.

Keep checking our social media outlets. When we are able to have all volunteers return, we will post that notice on our social media pages. Thanks for your understanding.
