Connecting with Our Community


The Franciscan Hospitality House

Tucked away at 114 6th Street N. in La Crosse, is the Franciscan Hospitality House. The House focuses on the vital needs of adults who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness, by providing a safe daytime environment.

The House is open from 12:30-4:30pm Mondays-Fridays. Guests have an opportunity to receive assistance with personal care services such as shower and laundry facilities, foot care, and hair care. Because the House works with  other organizations that provide services to the homeless population, they offer mental health support, job training referrals and legal consultation.

Training for individuals interested in volunteering at the Franciscan Hospitality House are scheduled for the 3rd Thursday of each month from 4:30-5:30pm. A list of items needed by the House, such as combs, coffee, creamer, and cereal, is located on their website:

The Franciscan Hospitality House is a welcoming place that offers acceptance and hope. It is a place where people can be empowered to rebuild their lives. It  is a place that affirms the Christ-like dignity in every individual through hospitality, listening, and a compassionate presence.


Mission & Social Action supports the session/church in developing, allocating and implementing a local, national, and worldwide mission and social plan.  Some activities in which First Presbyterian is involved include: delivering meals two weeks each month for Mobile Meals; participating actively on the Task Forces of AMOS (Food Insecurity, Restorative Justice; Hmong Issues and Health Care);  collecting food for WAFER;  serving on the Board of La Crosse Interfaith Collaborative Housing and mentoring those who obtain housing;  supporting New Horizons through housing and Christmas in July; volunteering at Causeway; serving meals once a month at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church.
