Mission Statement: Saint Francis Outreach (SFO) is the social outreach arm of the parish. The ministry aids individuals in need, by working closely with Deep Well, Holy Family’s St. Vincent de Paul Society, and other local churches and agencies, sharing vouchers for food, temporary lodging, clothing and furniture. SFO makes referrals to other community resources as appropriate.

Current Activities: Volunteers screen and evaluate and verify the client’s request.  Then, they request the monies/resources from appropriate resources. Client records are maintained both electronically and in hard copy.

Current Volunteer Opportunities: At the present time, SFO has twenty-five volunteers. Additional volunteers are always welcome. Interested parishioners may contact the above phone number.

Resource Requirements: The parish funds SFO at a level determined by the Finance Council. During the past fiscal year, the ministry has helped over 400 families and individuals in our community.
