December Share the Plate: Siena/Francis House (Sundays) and Minister’s Discretionary Fund (Christmas Eve)

One half of Second Unitarian’s offering received on Sundays in December will go to the Siena/Francis House. Founded in 1975, Nebraska’s largest shelter provides food, emergency shelter, and clothing, along with outreach and case management to homeless families and individuals from Omaha and surrounding communities.  They house a residential chemical addictions treatment center, day services center, employment training program, and medical clinic.  The Siena/Francis House tries to never turn away any person or family who comes to them in need, regardless of the circumstances that led them to seek help. They are not affiliated with a national or religious organization. Visit

One half of the offering received on Christmas Eve will go to the Minister’s Discretionary Fund.
The Fund helps provide emergency financial assistance to members of the Second Unitarian community, primarily for utility bills, groceries, rent, and medical needs.
