The mission of the Siena/Francis House is directed toward a concern and care of the poor. This mission is realized in feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, and clothing the needy. This mission extends beyond merely answering physical needs to the acceptance and affirmation of the human person, the creation of an atmosphere of hospitality, and the provision of purpose and meaning in the lives of people who struggle for survival. It is also the mission of the Siena/Francis House to call the greater Omaha community to a social consciousness and to enlist help and support in the care of the homeless and the indigent.

Founded in 1975, the Siena/Francis House is Nebraska’s largest shelter and is located in three facilities at 17th & Nicholas Streets in downtown Omaha, Nebraska. The Siena/Francis House provides emergency overnight shelter to men, women, and women with children. The Siena/Francis House also provides food to the homeless through our Meal Provider Program, clothing, and case management outreach services through our day services program.

Additionally, the Siena/Francis House operates a residential addiction recovery program, aptly named our “Miracles” Treatment Center.

The Siena/Francis House also provides facility space for personnel from the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA), Charles Drew Health Center, Creighton University Medical Center & Medical School, Community Alliance, and Legal Aid of Nebraska, all of whom provide medical and mental health care services and legal assistance to our homeless guests.
