Service to the Poor & Homeless of Santa Cruz

Hunger is a daily challenge for the homeless and needy in Santa Cruz. The St. Francis Catholic Kitchen and Jesus, Mary and Joseph Home feed and care for the poorest in our community. A hearty daily lunch is served at the "Kitchen" with special care to serve our guests with kindness. Jesus Mary Joseph Home (JMJ) is a facility in Santa Cruz that provides shelter for women and children in need. These two programs are the focus of our mission: to serve the poor.

People of all faiths come to serve and be served at the Kitchen - the only place in Santa Cruz that serves a midday meal.

For over 35 years our organization has served Santa Cruz with the help of our dedicated volunteer workers and donors.
