Mission Statement

Help serve a hot breakfast meal in the morning before school or work to our guests experiencing homelessness.

The mission of St. Francis Center is to serve poor families and homeless individuals in the Garment District area of downtown Los Angeles by: serving the poor in the immediate necessities of food and clothing; addressing the systemic causes of poverty through advocacy and other means; and educating, empowering, and accompanying the poor to give them the tools necessary to build better lives and neighborhoods.

Saint Francis Center is a multi-service community outreach center founded in 1972 by Father Hugh Noonan, OFM (Order of Franciscan Minors) in response to the growing numbers of poor, needy families, seniors and homeless individuals in the Garment District neighborhood surrounding downtown Los Angeles. The Center began as social ministry project of Saint Joseph Church, a Roman Catholic parish under the sponsorship of the Franciscan Minors of California-Santa Barbara Province and supported by the local chapter of Secular Franciscans.
