The Social Apostolate in Savannah has been reaching out to and trying to empower people who are homeless and at-risk of homelessness since 1968 under the guidance of the Missionary Franciscan Sisters. The center provides a wide variety of services. One of their goals always is to fill the gaps in services that prevent someone from moving forward on the path to self-sufficiency. To accomplish this goal one of our most successful programs has been the Birth Certificate/ID Program. Clients are hleped by processing the paperwork and paying all fees, thus providing them with documents they need to find employment and apply for many other services and programs.
The team at the Social Apostolate believes that as they serve each client they are serving Jesus. (Matthew 25:40 “whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”).Because of this belief each client is treated with the respect they deserve as a child of God.
