Mission Statement: Saint Francis Outreach (SFO) works to follow Christ's example of helping the poor and the suffering. This ministry serves people living or working on Hilton Head Island by helping to pay their rent, utility, and other bills. We also provide clothing and furniture vouchers through the Saint Francis Thrift Shop.
We also partner with Deep Well, Holy Family's Saint Vincent DePaul Society, and other agencies to assist those in need. We also direct the hungry to the numerous local food agencies and can provide food cards to those in immediate need.
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.
