Saint Francis Ministries is strengthened through partnerships with community stakeholders who care about the vulnerable and at-risk children and families we serve. Through prayers, in-kind contributions and financial gifts, our community partners show their commitment to making a difference.
“We belong to each other” is a phrase we say a lot around Saint Francis Ministries. We know that no single organization can support vulnerable and at-risk children in the community by itself. Everyone is strengthened when we work together, and Saint Francis Ministries is more successful with your help.
The impact of your prayers, donations of beds that mean children get to return home earlier, or dollars changes lives. Inviting Saint Francis in to talk about foster care and adoption or allowing us to put out printed material are simple steps that makes a difference! The support of businesses, organizations, and individuals in the six states where we serve children and families changes futures for children and gives them hope.
On this page, we’ll share the stories of our business and organization partners who impact their communities with their generosity.
Please reach out to the Saint Francis Ministries development team if you’d like to learn how you can support the children and families in your community. We look forward to getting to know you!

Docuplex has been fantastic to support the important work we do supporting foster parents, helping vulnerable and at-risk families and generally helping people understand our missions and goals. Recently, they went above and beyond to help us sort out a challenge with our postage account — and we appreciate them! No one organization can take care of the children and families involved in the child welfare system. It takes all of us! We’re glad to work with organizations and businesses like Docuplex!
Twenty families joined our old fashioned family cookout at Hunter Park in Tulsa as part of our Foster Care Appreciation event. Let’s give a shout-out to Chick-fil-A for providing food and to our SFM staff for pulling it all together. And let’s give an even bigger “Thank You!” to our foster and kinship parents who work so hard every day to provide safe, loving homes to the children in their care. You make everything possible!
We are so very grateful for community support of youth in foster care! Thank you to the Salina Elks Lodge #718 for their generous donation! The dollars help to support our work to help children find their way to stable and loving homes. Gary Hindman, Exalted Ruler of the Salina Elks Lodge, dropped by our offices last week to give us the check, and he shared about his extensive history in the Salina community. It is always a joy to talk with people who have spent their lives giving back. Thank you, Gary, and the Salina Elks Lodge!
The folks from Great Plains Manufacturing in Salina recently delivered – literally a truckload – of presents to our Otis offices. For the several of the last few years, Great Plains has partnered with us to help ensure children in foster care are not forgotten at Christmas. Our annual Christmas for Kids campaign owes much of its success to their employee toy drives and volunteers who help collect and move the toys for distribution. Thanks to Great Plains and to our own IT, Maintenance, and Foundation staffs who helped unload all the toys this week. Thanks to you, local children in foster care can expect a special Christmas.
