St. Francis Housing Crisis Center has been located at 70 Washington St. in St. Augustine for more than 30 years. Today, St. Francis House is a housing-focused PROGRAM – a Housing Crisis Center! The residential program accommodates 16 men, 12 women and 4 families. Families receive specific assistance to ensure that children’s education is not interrupted, and stability of the family unit is maintained.

Planning for the future starts the day an individual or family enters the housing crisis program. While part of the program, guests’ basic needs are met giving them the opportunity to engage in housing-focused case management that links them to appropriate services to ensure success. Through Individual Development Plans, case managers help guests focus on solutions, not just basic needs. At St. Francis Housing Crisis Center we always remember that the solution to homelessness is housing. Your gift can be the difference between a desperate situation and hope.  Your gift can help break the cycle of homelessness in St. Johns County. You can be a part of the solution.
