Welcome to St. Francis Inn Ministries

 

We are a Franciscan, Eucharistic community called to minister with the poor and homeless of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Formed in the spirit of the Gospel and inspired by the life and compassion of Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi, we try to meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing and hospitality. Furthermore, we empower persons to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty and address structural injustices. We seek to build relationships with those that we serve by respecting their human dignity and by helping them to restore hope in their lives, and by living simply among them.

Hello Inn Friends,

The Inn is running short on Toiletries and would appreciate any help you can give. We are looking for: Soap (Bars & Body Wash), Shampoo, Conditioner, Deodorant, Lotion, Razors, Shaving Cream, Toothpaste, and Toothbrushes. We need both regular and travel sizes.

Thanks so much for all your support,
The St. Francis Inn Team

Can you post your mailing address? I’ll hit up Amazon for you 😉

Thanks so much Julie, our address is: St. Francis Inn, 2441 Kensington Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125

Can you make an Amazon wishlist?

We will send via amazon as well!!

We just ran a toiletries drive at First Presbyterian Church in Kensington. I'll put you in touch with our deacons to have some delivered. We have about 2/3 dozen bags made up specifically for men.

Thank you everybody for all your generosity. In response to the request for an Amazon wishlist, you can find one at a.co/c5dfT52 , please remember that this list is representative, not exhaustive (i.e. if you find other similar items or quantities we'll take them).

I’ll send something through Amazon! Thanks for posting your address.

Done!
