Support San Damiano

Give Now

The Franciscans are mendicants.  In other words, we beg.  Francis of Assisi saw  begging as a way to emulate the poor and humble example of Jesus Christ. And so we humbly beg for your support. Your donations enable us to care for and staff our 60 year old facility and to make it accessible to all people regardless of financial means.

Volunteering at San Damiano
