From their vision statement: The VISION of the San Damiano Foundation, is that by living the prayer of St. Francis, there would be storefronts, shelters/transitional homes and retreat places accessible to all people in every community in our areas and that through the provision and maintenance of these “places” all who come to any of our “places” will not be hungry or thirsty, sad or alone and that every person would come to know they are of value and loved. It is our vision that all people, in particular youth, will receive respect and give respect and that in our safe and secure places there will be growth of individual confidence, kindness and strength of character.
The long time president of the foundation, Colleen MacAlister, ofs is a Secular Franciscan.
