In the kitchen and off the streets
Jobs(+) helps two men find work

When Juan, a 40-year-old father of six young children found  himself out of work and living "downtown," he came to Francis House seeking help. Juan has been a proud and hardworking Sacramentan working in the landscaping business. Through our Jobs(+)  program  we were able to get Juan an interview with Bar Rouse, a hip new downtown restaurant;  they were so impressed by him they hired him on the spot as their kitchen jack-of-all-trades. Congrats Juan for your budding culinary career! 
Robert G., an electrician by trade, moved from Texas to Sacramento and fell on hard times. Just this week we were able to help him get a food handler card, a job at Subway and free transit through our Fast Track program. Robert's next step is to find a place to live and then start buying electrician's tools. 

The Francis House Jobs(+) program helped 45 people  find work this year. 

It's time to buy your tickets or a sponsorship to our biggest fundraiser, unhomed. 
Sacramento Homeless population on the rise. 
The number of people experiencing homelessness increased by 30 percent since 2015 as reported in the 2017 Point in Time report. Despite our many programs, we are up against staggering numbers. We need your support more than ever to get the unhomed humans of Sacramento into shelters and permanent housing. Read the SacBee report
