7 Decades of Hope

Serving our community year after year

Over 70 years ago, Father Alfred Boeddeker opened the doors of St. Anthony’s Dining Room. Since then, we’ve expanded our services to include a medical clinic, free clothing program, technology lab, and more. But our mission remains the same: To care for those in need and create a society in which all persons flourish.
