Where is my ticket money going?

To Francis House.
Francis House is a resource and counseling center for the poor supported by seventeen churches and the community at large. All to often, we provide the last hope for those disenfranchised from the main stream of society. Anyone in need is welcomed with a warm cup of coffee and a dose of compassion. Our counseling is much like you would experience with a friend who was having difficulties; listen first, then help problem solve their dilemma. This could include something as simple as a referral to a food closet, providing a motel voucher or as complex as advocacy for a client in the Welfare system. Read MORE.
