Sister Teresa Groth: Franciscan Homes

President Duncan with Sister Teresa Groth and three of their clients from The Franciscan Homes
Last Friday at the club, we had the treat of hearing from Sister Teresa Groth from The Franciscan Homes and three men in different stages of their re-entry program. The Francisco Homes has a mission of offering hope and multi-faceted holistic hope to formerly incarcerated individuals aspiring to reintegrate back into the community.
This is a fantastic program that truly supports re-entry and re-integration through emotional, physical and spiritual support. They provide classes that address everything from addiction recovery to cooking classes to useful skills that will help in getting employment. It was clear from the men who joined her and spoke that this organization's work is valuable and necessary. Click below if you want to check out their website and learn more.
