The St. Francis Center is a community hub that provides essential services for people struggling to survive in the local economy. The Center consists of a community of people committed to protecting fundamental human rights, such as access to education, affordable housing, health care, and basic human needs such as food and clothing.
When necessary, the staff, families, and our community of volunteers engage in social advocacy work to protect our neighborhood and the people who call North Fair Oaks home. Recent advocacy campaigns have involved tenant displacements, unfair rent hikes, and sex-related businesses moving into the neighborhood. St. Francis Center chooses to participate in social advocacy campaigns that support human dignity and promote the common good.
