FRIARS SHELTER

OUR MISSION

Home is Where Our Heart Is

It is said that charity begins at home, but should not end there. For people without homes, Friars provide more than a pillow to rest on. Our shelters and permanent residences treat people as family members, offering showers, fresh haircuts, clothing and medication management. Friars often care for the mentally disabled and dependent who have suffered years of personal and institutional neglect. Our drop-in centers are home-like environments that greet people with warm meals and open hearts.
