About Us A longstanding Wicker Park/Bucktown charity, Franciscan Outreach is one of the largest providers of programs and services to assist the homeless in Chicago. Our administrative and case management offices are headquartered in the Marquard Center on LeMoyne Street, in which we also operate a kitchen that serves more than 30,000 meals a year. We operate a 252-bed shelter on the West Side that provides over 80,000 nights of shelter and 160,000 meals. Our case managers work at the Marquard Center, the Franciscan House Shelter, and St. Peter’s Church downtown. They help men and women trying to improve their lives and transition out of homelessness to obtain health care, counseling, social services, vocational training, and permanent housing. 

Franciscan Outreach’s small staff is augmented by a group of young full-time volunteers from throughout the United States and Europe who donate a year of service and a pool of over 2,500 community volunteers. These include Wicker Park/Bucktown neighbors, members of our Young Professionals Board, concerned individuals from throughout the city and suburbs, and groups of corporate volunteers. 

We would love to hear from more of our Wicker Park/Bucktown neighbors – businesses and residents – and welcome your involvement and support. In these hard economic times, please join us in improving the lives of the less fortunate. To learn more about Franciscan Outreach and our programs, please call Merrill Gonzalez or Kevin Morrissey at 773-278-6724.
