It is our belief that St. Anthony’s commitment to San Francisco’s poor and homeless residents would only be of partial service if we did not also use our unique position in the community to educate the broader public on the issues that our clients face. Our Social Justice Education Program offers opportunities to learn more about causes of and solutions to poverty.
