St. Anthony’s is a warm and wonderful community. It is also a very effective social service agency. Your contribution means fewer people living on our streets, fewer people going to public emergency rooms, and more residents learning to find employment.
By the Numbers
15,000 people, including women and children, live on the street and in shelters, and thousands more use free food programs to stretch budgets that don’t quite cover food, clothing, medical expenses, and San Francisco rents.
100 years ago, the original St. Anthony’s Dining Room was built to be used as an auto repair shop. While the need increases, the building and equipment get older. Old equipment and an obsolete building design restrict and slow down service.
