How Your Donation Helps

Friendship Service Center is a homeless services agency which operates an emergency shelter for individuals and families, emergency financial assistance, food pantry for people with HIV/AIDS, and soup kitchen for anyone in need. Agency also manages a transitional living residence for men or women referred by a shelter.

Monsignor Joseph Farrell had an idea of how to help “street alcoholics” back in the 60’s.  He would open a drop in Center to provide them with food, a place to get them off the streets during the day and the fellowship of those who cared.

From that humble start, the Friendship Center has grown to encompass a Continuum of Care philosophy of offering services for those who are poor, hungry and homeless.  The growth process is a story in itself, each added service an act of faith always keeping in mind the original dream born fruit in the heart and mind of our founder.
