Saint's Place (St. Louis Church) assists legal refugees starting their first home in Rochester. The people we assist are starting from scratch. They arrive with only a few personal belongings.  Saint’s Place also has a large Educational Initiative that awards scholarships, computers, payment for vocational training, tool grants and other ways to advance a person’s education.  We feel obtaining a higher education is important in helping a family rise out of poverty.

  • furniture (gently-used): dressers, kitchen tables and chairs, coffee tables, end tables, beds (twin or double, no king-size), sofas (no recliners or sofa beds)
  • table lamps (large), floor lamps
  • pots and pans, especially large cooking pots and saucepans
  • towels (all sizes)
  • winter coats, men's and women's (sizes S, M, L)
  • blankets, all sizes, clean, gently used
  • twin sheets, clean, gently used

Volunteers Needed:
  • Saint's Place has two Tutoring Programs: one at Sacred Heart Cathedral, one at St. Marianne Cope Parish at Guardian Angels. Call for information.
