I have been working with this nonprofit on a monthly basis for the past 5 years--- and they are awesome! They are big enough to handle many community projects, but small enough so that you feel like you are actually working when you are there. I know some places turn down volunteers, and that's sad-- but many places need you to come in and lend a hand--- there's the cool part-- serving the homeless--- but there are lots of other parts-- like doing dishes after the food is prepared- that need to be done to make this place run. Great management. Great heart!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
It was great helping out and reaching out to the less fortunate. I was glad to give a smile to at least one person when we handed out food to them. The Saint Francis Center is a wonderful way to do community service and you're able to bond with people. :)
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
helping, giving service, and welcoming people.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try to give as much food as possible.
