Child and Family Services

Franciscan Charities has developed a unique bond with the women in the neighborhood, especially those with young children.  Our Child and Family Services Program is designed to help fill in gaps by providing essentials like diapers, formula, baby wipes, clothing and infant care products, as well as feminine hygiene products for women and teenage girls.

This program also works in conjunction with our Social Advocacy Program in matters such as housing, job recovery and more.

 Our Children’s Literacy Initiative, which provides books and other educational material as well as reading assistance, is also administered within this Program.
