Feast for the Streets is our largest annual fund raising event. The Food and Wine Tastings along with the Live and Silent Auctions are the heart of this fund raising event, supplementing the monthly revenues generated to assist in meeting the needs of our clients. We are hoping that you will consider joining us, providing food or wine tastings and/or making a donation to our live or silent auction. Your participation will be acknowledged in the event program and on your food or wine and/or the auction tables.
Francis House has experienced a dramatic increase of those in need of our services. Where we once had 2 or 3 clients waiting for us to open, we now have 30 or more clients waiting for us each morning; waiting in the cold, rainy weather, many of whom spend their nights outside in the cold. Waiting for that warm cup of coffee, a dose of compassion and a bus pass to get to the food closets, to the doctor or to apply for Food Stamps and General Assistance. Waiting to utilize our Career Center with high hopes of finding work. Waiting to see if they have qualified for our Family Rescue Program. Waiting and hoping for a brighter tomorrow.
Your support makes you a partner in the good work that Francis House does and ensures that we continue to meet our mission of providing Sacramentoï¿½s most vulnerable, invisible and often overlooked citizens with a safe, drug-free and hospitable environment from which to receive imperative safety-net services.
