Francis House is a resource and counseling center for the poor supported by the community at large and by 17 prominent Congregations in the Sacramento Region. Francis House is a faith-based community providing life changing opportunities through resource counseling, direct services, education, support groups, spiritual resources and referrals. We provide free programs offering the homeless and impoverished an opportunity to reconnect with society and embrace the possibilities of positive change. One hundred percent of all proceeds from this event will directly serve those who suffer poverty in our community. Our funding comes from our seventeen member churches, the business community, individual donations and fundraisers. For more information, please visit www.francishouse.info.
