Let's make our community a better place by helping each other!
The St. Francis Shelter was the project of Franciscan Ministries. Since 2015, it has been hosted by the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Tucson, AZ. The shelter has not been immune to the COVID-19 virus. With our mission statement to guide us, we are currently restructuring so that we can continue to serve the homeless community in Tucson safely and effectively.
The St. Francis Shelter exists and functions with a clearly defined mission statement:
"Responding in faith to a call for personal conversion and spiritual growth, we are an interfaith community of men, joined together to live in mutual respect and support. We are united to one another by living a purposeful life in the service of others.
"We dedicate our lives to a ministry to those who are homeless and the most vulnerable members of society. Through non-judgmental acceptance of all, our community gives witness to the dignity and value of all persons as we create a safe place in which all are welcomed and served."
The St. Francis shelter is a low-demand facility. We place minimal conditions on our guests. Every marginalized man is welcome to come to us as he is with no pretense or expectations. We only ask that our guests be respectful of the space, the neighborhood, the shelter staff and his fellow guests.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, recognized by the IRS.
