SFA has developed a relationship with CityTeam in Chester PA,
a Christian based organization which serves both families and individuals in need.
CITY TEAM MISSION ~ Passionate about serving others
LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR – “We desire to share Christ’s unconditional and redemptive love by caring for immediate needs and enabling lasting solutions”.
CITY TEAM VISION
LEADING PEOPLE – “To restore lives and rebuild communities through innovative programs which provide food, shelter, clothing, training, and spiritual transformation”.
Some of St. Francis’ work with CityTeam has been seasonal projects such as;
- School Supplies and Backpacks for kids at the end of Summer.
- Packing food boxes for families in need to help celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas, and in the Spring, Easter.
There are also Weekly events we hope to join in moving forward, such as the distribution of food bags, clothing, and mother and baby supplies.
Every other Saturday is a lovely event called Hope Cafe, where a sit-down meal is held at their center for unhoused individuals. Volunteers are needed for Food Prep in the late morning, and also for serving the meals late afternoon, early evening.

Specific activities with dates and times that we plan to work as a group with CityTeam
will be posted in St. Francis Parish’s Weekly Church Bulletin.
(We try to offer carpooling to these events also).
