Franciscan Outreach is one of the oldest and largest providers for men and women who are homeless in the Chicago area. From offering refuge from the streets, to feeding the hungry, to helping individuals build a better life, Franciscan Outreach is a lifeline to thousands in need each year.
All individuals are welcome, regardless of background or religious affiliation, and are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
Our programs and sites include:
•The 257-bed Franciscan House at 2715 W. Harrison and the 65-bed Franciscan Annex at 200 S. Sacramento on Chicago’s West Side. Both are overnight facilities with showers and a kitchen. Guests are served supper when they arrive in the evening and breakfast in the morning before departing. There is a free medical clinic and visits by mental health workers.
