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!
Jamie Benyshek is raising money to purchase books for kids in care.
“I am so excited to be hosting a book drive this week for Saint Francis Ministries of Kansas,” Jamie says. “May is Foster Care Awareness Month, and now more than ever these kids need to know they have people in their corner.”
Jamie understands the importance of reading and how it can impact development. Creating. alove of books and reading can change a child’s life!
Star Lumber & Supply was founded more than three-quarters of a century ago, and in that time, they deeply understand the importance of community. As they built relationships, they launched the Goebel Family Star Lumber Charitable Foundation. (Learn more about the company’s history in the video above!)
Star Lumber donated $5,400 to Saint Francis Ministries to purchase beds, one of the items most-needed by the families we serve. Such a gift is not just about furniture but about making it possible for children to return home.
In fact, two beds were purchased to replace beds a single mother lost in a house fire. She needed the beds to begin overnight visitations with her children, and to plan for full reintegration by April.
Your dollars, your kindness, your prayers – they change lives. Thank you, Star Lumber, for helping to build strong families!
