The annual Fall campaign was launched in 2016 to raise funds to improve and expand existing services and establish the Center’s nutritious food program.

The focus shifted beyond the basics in 2018 to generate resources to support opportunities for Pope Francis Center guests to “thrive,” including creating a housing program to help them transition into permanent housing.

With significant changes to our programming throughout the coronavirus pandemic, our 2020 THRIVE Change for Change crowdfunding campaign will focus on covering expenses to provide our guests with quarters and detergent for our recently established laundry service program in partnership with Lafayette Laundry. This year’s THRIVE campaign is framed by three fundraiser events:

  • Stretch at Sunset on Thursday, Aug. 27
  • Cooking with Clergy on Thursday, Sept 10
  • Second Annual Off-Road Rally on Thursday, Sept. 24
