The home has been rebuilding lives for 35 years by way of rehabilitation services, housing services, and other basic needs.

While at the St. Francis House, Athena Capital volunteers assisted in the clothing department and the kitchen. Acting as personal shoppers in the clothing department, volunteers located items, styles, and sizes that fit individuals' needs. In the kitchen, volunteers completed food preparation, service, and clean up.
