St. Francis Catholic Kitchen

Want to join us in making a difference? My name is Pat Gorman and I am the Director of the Jesus Mary Joseph Home,  the sister program of the St. Francis Catholic Kitchen. This year we are celebrating 30 years of providing shelter to homeless women and children in Santa Cruz County.  Our home  is in need of renovation.  Our first phase is to secure funds  for a new roof and  any donation will help make an impact in the lives of homeless families and our community at large. 

Jesus Mary Joseph Home is a long-term 24/7 transitional shelter in Santa Cruz for women & children who are experiencing homelessness. JMJ also provides private daily personal care for one person in need of end of life care. We have provided shelter to over 500 families with the primary focus being education, employment and permanent housing. 

On behalf of myself, the board of directors and the current and future residents of the Jesus Mary Joseph Home, thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us.
