Our Mission

Francis House is committed to providing HIV supportive services in a safe environment designed to encourage and empower those affected to become self-sufficient members of our communtiy. Our services are designed to teach clients effective skills for making more appropriate life choices while exercising responsibility for their own decisions and actions. Francis House uses a holistic approach to improve client's quality of life by offering comprehensive services, both onsite and in collaboration with other community-based organizations. 

Onsite mechanisms for program delivery include housing and medical case management, mental health and substance abuse counseling, emergency support, nutritional services, transportation assistance, and recreational therapy.  Case managers and counselors work hand-in-hand to identify and assist clients who might otherwise fall through the gaps in the community’s safety net, with individual and family counseling sessions offered daily and during the evening hours. Our nutritional programs reinforce the need for proper nourishment to support antiretroviral regimens; in the past 5 years, FH has distributed over $100,000 in food and hygiene items and over $20,000 worth of grocery store vouchers to the local HIV/AIDS community. We have also provided over $90,000 in emergency assistance payments, in one-time allotments of up to $250 for rent, utilities or other quality of life expenses. 

For more information on our programs and services, please contact us at 813-237-3066
