The Pope Francis Center

The Pope Francis Center has been serving Detroit's homeless for nearly thirty years.

On an average day, we welcome as many as 200 guests and serve as many nutritious meals. We also provide hot showers, laundry facilities and access to doctors, dentists, lawyers, and housing providers through our free clinics.

We see the humanity and goodness in each person who arrives at the Center and treat them with the dignity we all deserve.

Thank you to our Sponsors!

This September, the PFC is Raising $60K in 30 Days

to launch a Mental Health and Substance Use Program, tackling two of the toughest issues facing Detroit's homeless.

Untreated mental illness and substance use are two of the leading causes of homelessness, and often lead to premature and tragic deaths. The Pope Francis Center lost six members of our community last year alone from complications relating to mental illness and substance use.

We know that the road to recovery can be long and bumpy. That's why this program is so crucial! Our Mental Health and Substance Use Program would provide support services from the moment a person first reaches out for help through to long-term stability and sobriety.

That's where YOU come in! By simply sharing this campaign, donating or attending our events, you can make a truly life-changing impact. Find out more about how you can help below!
