PCM Collaborates with Siena/Francis House
Siena/Francis House addresses the needs of homeless men, women, and children in the northeast area of Omaha. Located at 17th and Nicholas Streets, it serves an evening meal to anyone who is in need. Overnight housing is provided, and there is assistance with clothing, job-hunting, and medical needs. There is longer-term housing for those in recovery programs, and rehabilitation programs for those with drug and/or alcohol addictions.

The second Monday of every month, PCM volunteers serve the evening meal at Francis House. The dinner is prepared by another church, so we are the waiters and bussers. It’s a worthwhile experience and a great opportunity for service to others. Individuals, couples, families can all do this. Sign up in the PCM Communications Center on Sundays or call Darla Holycross.
Every Thursday morning, a PCM volunteer picks up the day-old bread and baked goods at Baker’s 132nd and Maple store and delivers it to Siena/Francis at 17th and Nicholas. These items are served at meals and extras are offered for diners to take with them. If you would like to be a part of this work, please call Dave Kellogg.
Siena/Francis has a need all through the year for clothing and personal care items. Check on the “Giving Tree” in the communications center for specific items, or watch for special promotions in worship (like “Undie Sunday”). Call Susie Hollman for information.
