Closing of Franciscan Hospitality House – March 27, 2020


Catholic Charities announced that it would be closing the Franciscan Hospitality House on March 27; however, due to the Co-Vid 19 we have been working closely with the Coulee Collaborative to End Homelessness and the Salvation Army to provide the best services to those who are experiencing homelessness in our community and have decided to close the facility. A lot of changes have occurred this week. Our La Crosse Warming Center has moved to a new location at Cathedral Schools. At this new location, we are able to provide 24/7 service to our homeless neighbors. We are able to provide service to up to 60 adult men and women. To learn more about the accommodations and the collaborative efforts view the press release that was sent out this week.

We hope that you will continue to partner with us and support this community work. We will notify you through this site if and when we are able to reopen the Franciscan Hospitality House. Until then, please keep those we serve in your prayers. If you are interested in volunteering or making a monetary donation, please visit our La Crosse Warming Center webpage or donate online
