The mission of the St. Francis Living Room is to improve the quality of life for low income and homeless seniors in the Tenderloin on a daily basis. A small part-time staff, committed Board, and dedicated volunteers work to provide a safe haven for social interaction, healthy breakfast, and connection to community services such as housing, health & wellness, and clothing.
The St. Francis Living Room has been a fixture in the Tenderloin for over 27 years, helping to support & enrich the lives of many older adults in this neighborhood. We settled in our current location in 2000, and became an independent non-profit operation in 2006.
Serving low income and homeless individuals over the age of 60 in the Tenderloin, the Living Room provides over 15,000 nutritious breakfasts annually, as well as social, educational, & recreational activities. In addition, we collaborate with numerous organizations and agencies to provide our clients with referrals to other resources for needs including food, housing, clothing, medical, and wellness, and more.
