St. Francis Center Long Beach

« Return to Benficiaries

Forty years ago, Paul Mousel founded St. Francis Center Long Beach. Paul led a simple life of service: feeding the hungry, housing the homeless and clothing the tattered. After his death, the St. Francis Center building fell into disrepair. And so, the poor could no longer knock on those doors to satisfy their hunger and need for help. But it is now time for new followers of Paul to resurrect his spirit and St. Francis Center. They are honoring Paul’s legacy by planning a reopening of the Center. Now open again, they will feed the hungry five days a week and provide access to basic needs. St. Francis Center has begun a one million-dollar campaign to refurbish the building, equip it, and have enough to operate for the first year.
