Mission Statement

Saint Francis, providing healing and hope to children and families.

Background Statement

The Rev. Robert Mize Jr., an Episcopal priest, founded Saint Francis Boys’ Home nearly seven decades ago in Ellsworth, Kansas. Fr. Bob had seen too many troubled youth disappear forever into the juvenile justice system, and he wanted to help them reclaim their lives and their futures. He offered hope. Over the years, the scope of our ministry has grown, encompassing foster care, therapeutic foster care, adoption, family preservation, residential care, international ministries, and community outreach services. We provide child welfare services in Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and adult developmental disabilities services in Mississippi. Saint Francis Boys’ Home began with 12 boys; today Saint Francis Ministries serves thousands of children and youth. Yet, we still do the same work begun by Fr. Bob – helping children and youth find a more hopeful future.

Impact Statement

Saint Francis will be recognized nationally and internationally for transforming lives and systems in ways others believe impossible.

QUALITY

We deliver services at the highest levels of excellence, in a manner that exceeds traditional standards, provided in a transparent, timely and reliable way by highly qualified, kind, and respectful staff.

RESPECT AND DIGNITY

We provide care that supports and reflects an understanding of a person, regardless of differences. This extends to our staff, clients and the communities we serve.

INNOVATION

We meet a changing environment by developing more effective solutions through the lens of evaluating current and past practices, and continuous improvement using creative invention, promising practices, and evidence-based research.

EMPOWERMENT

We take ownership of our work, exercise decision making to achieve goals, and maximize quality of services with shared accountability and responsibility.

Our vision calls us to transform lives and systems, which is an ambitious endeavor. Yet, it’s not nearly as daunting as it seems. Our task is simply to serve when we can, offer help where we see need, and do good at every opportunity. Saint Francis has long been an agent of transformation in the lives of those we serve. Through our widening work internationally, we also seek to transform systems by helping change policies and structures that negatively affect children and families.

Saint Francis measures progress through metrics-driven performance. Each year, the organization sets strategic. departmental and individual goals. To be transparent, we also post data in our annual report that shows how many children are reintegrated with their families, how many children find their forever homes through adoption and how many individuals are served residentially - just to name a few.

Needs Statement Saint Francis Ministries has a constant need for foster families who are willing to give children loving homes and facilitate reintegration with his or her biological family. Additionally, we need financial support to provide hope for children and families through these programs.
