Why Does Saint Francis Home Need Your Help?
Given the funding gap between the actual cost of care per resident and the payments we receive, the amount needed on average to bridge the gap per resident is $1,650/month.
- Cost of care per resident averages $3,300 per month
Because Saint Francis Home subsidizes over half of our residents’ room and board, the Home is challenged with making up this income in other ways.
Every year, Saint Francis Home seeks about $1.4 million in philanthropic support and grants to bridge the funding gap, update and replace equipment, and maintain and renovate its aging buildings, the oldest of which was built in 1955.
How Your Gifts Make an Impact!

100% of the Home’s residents are Low Income (80% less than Median Local Income); 95% are Very Low Income (50% less than Median Local Income); and 66% are Extremely Low Income (30% less than Median Local Income).
– Based on the Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area (PMSA) median yearly income levels, as of November 2020.
