Through the Family Well-Being Program, St. Francis Center offers weekly Pantry Services for families, youth, disabled adults, seniors, veterans, and those living in supportive housing. Not only do guests benefit from groceries that staff and volunteers distribute through the program, but the food pantry also serves as a means to introduce families and individuals to the Center’s other services, including holiday adopt-a-family, health care, summer camps for youth, as well as a variety of partner agency programs through our resource services. Combined these program offerings provide guests with the tools necessary to build better lives and neighborhoods.
SFC also serves the disadvantaged children of our pantry guests through our Youth Programs, offering opportunities that engage them in a variety of activities that build self esteem, spur personal growth and open their eyes to new opportunities and a brighter future!
SFC’s Homeless Well-Being Program is designed to help end the cycle of poverty for our guests, who may find themselves at our doorstep due to a variety of life-changing events, including job loss, addiction, illness or injury. The Homeless Well-Being Program provides homeless guests with warm meals and sack lunches six days a week through our served meal service. We also provide health and hygiene services, mail service, as well as a variety of partner agency programs through our resource services.
SFC has also aligned with Mayor Garcetti’s efforts to end veterans’ homelessness in Los Angeles. Specifically, we now extend the opportunity for veterans to utilize both our homeless served meal program and our Pantry Services making it easier to transition from homelessness.
