"None of us can think we are exempt from concerns for the poor
and for social justice." — Pope Francis
The Francis Fund
Untying the Knots of Hunger and Homelessness
The Francis Fund was a special fund in honor of Pope Francis’ 2015 visit to Philadelphia. The Fund was used to meet concrete needs of people in the Philadelphia region and Camden who are struggling with hunger, homelessness, and poverty, in the spirit of Pope Francis’ own special compassion and concern for our poor sisters and brothers.
The Francis Fund represents a variety of faith and non-denominational organizations serving the region's most vulnerable men, women, and children. Click here for a list of Francis Fund organizations and what they will do with your support.
Project HOME, in collaboration with the World Meeting of Families Hunger and Homelessness Committee, granted all monies raised for the Francis Fund to other organizations, for the purpose of alleviating hunger, poverty and homelessness in Philadelphia and Camden. The Francis Fund did not fund any of the operations or direct program expenditures of Project HOME.
