Mission Statement

In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, that each person who enters this shelter who crosses the threshold of this place, they find someone who is truly interested in them.  That we meet each person exactly as they are.  That this house and the people in it reach out to each and every guest, and that a guest never feels a sense of need to rise in any state, other than their own humanity, at whatever level that may be, socio-economic, mentally, physically, spiritually.  That each and everyone who enters this sacred ground knows that he or she is valued and taken seriously.  That they count, that they are wanted, needed and loved.

 That the Grace and Peace of Jesus Christ and of Francis permeate our environment.  And that all we do expresses the need of that Grace, so as to embrace each and every one who enters.
