Cost of Care

It costs Francis House $7,000 per resident per month to provide care. Residents are asked to contribute towards the cost of their care. There is a sliding scale for residents with limited resources. No resident is ever turned away because of lack of resources. Funds raised help to meet the cost of care for our residents.
