December Share the Plate – Siena Francis House

Every month Second Unitarian donates one half of our offering to a local non-profit organization. December’s Share the Plate recipient is the Siena Francis House.

Founded in 1975, the Siena Francis House’s ultimate goal is to end homelessness by helping our clients achieve permanent, stable housing out in the community. In support of this effort, Siena Francis House provides shelter, food, clothing and other emergency services to individuals experiencing homelessness – 24/7, 365 days a year. Siena Francis House also provides on-site, Permanent Supportive Housing for formerly homeless, disabled persons, as well as residential addiction rehabilitation services.

Siena Francis House programs and services are located in six facilities north of Nicholas Street and bounded by 16th and 18th Streets in north downtown Omaha, Nebraska. The Siena Francis House also provides facility space for partnering organizations that provide housing resources, medical and mental healthcare and other services that our clients may need. Exercising a policy of unconditional acceptance, Siena Francis House provides low barrier services to clients with the respect and dignity they deserve, including those often viewed as “most difficult to serve”— the chronically addicted and mentally ill homeless persons who may not currently be in treatment or taking medication.
