Are you interested in becoming part of a special group of people dedicated to helping others? We are thankful for the hundreds of St. Francis volunteers who share a commitment to being good help to those in need. Their boundless spirit and dedication is evident in their service at ST. FRANCIS downtown and ST. FRANCIS eastside.

St. Francis volunteers are people who want to explore new learning experiences and have a desire to serve others. Our volunteers range from students and teenagers investigating career options, to parents who have a few hours to spare to retired men and women who want to keep busy and remain active.
