St. Francis Neighborhood Center is committed to breaking the cycles of generational poverty through education, inspiring self-esteem, self-improvement, and strengthening connections to the community.
By utilizing mediums such as education, art, well-being, and spirituality, we work to provide people with the tools they need to advance their lives financially, spiritually, and socially, while fostering positive interpersonal and community connections. This in turn gives people a sense of self-empowerment, which is the principle driving force in creating extraordinary change within individuals and the community.
