At St. Francis, we understand our Outreach ministries to be a natural and necessary outgrowth of our worshipping life together. St. Francis is committed to the pursuit of justice and peace for the welfare of the city of Greensboro and the larger community. We partner with organizations dealing with food insecurity, housing uncertainty and homelessness, educational accessibility, and mental health issues. We are proud supporters of Greensboro Urban Ministry (GUM), Backpack Beginnings, A Simple Gesture, Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD), Meals on Wheels, Rise Against Hunger, and others.
In addition to a clergy liaison, the Outreach Committee is comprised of dedicated laypersons with particular passions for parish involvement. St. Francis' Outreach efforts are funded entirely by our annual Spring book sale, now in its sixth decade of operation. If you would like more information about Outreach at St. Francis, please contact Mary Flinn, the chair of the Outreach Committee.
St. Francis is proud to have long-term partnerships in place with Sanctuary House, an organization which supports persons and families in the throes of mental health challenges, as well as Community Housing Solutions, which assists individuals in Guilford County with housing repairs necessitated by natural disaster or life season.

While we are privileged to financially support local organizations, initiatives, and services, our Outreach Committee also dispatches volunteers for work projects in the community. Recently, a group from St. Francis assisted with yard work and minor home repair for those reeling from the effects of the east Greensboro tornadoes in 2018 (pictured right).
