About Pope Francis Center
The Pope Francis Center is a Jesuit ministry located in the heart of downtown Detroit that aides the city’s homeless. On an average day, we welcome nearly 200 guests and provide them with nutritious meals, showers, laundry and access to doctors, dentists, lawyers, and housing providers through our free clinics. We have been serving Detroit’s most vulnerable citizens for the past 30 years, and we’re committed to eradicating chronic homelessness by 2030.
For many people living on Detroit’s streets, Pope Francis Center is a beacon of help and hope. We see the humanity and goodness in everyone who comes through our doors and treat our guests with the dignity God intends for all His children.
We offer all our guests a safe place to take respite from life on the streets. We are dedicated to helping our guests unlock their potential so they can realize a brighter future.
