It’s said that poverty in the U.S. is largely invisible. Not to us. We see its many faces every day—adults, children, immigrants, the elderly, the sick and drug addicted. A rainbow of races, struggling to get by. We’re Franciscan Friars. Following in the footsteps of St. Francis, we have renounced all worldly possessions and devoted our lives to the service of those most in need. Headquartered in New York City, FriarWorks is a non-profit network of Friar parishes across the Eastern seaboard, providing life-changing services to people in poverty.
