Lima Center Provides Essential Care for San Francisco’s Neediest

While the world focused on the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) held in San Francisco last week, much of the discussion among world leaders was on the ongoing humanitarian crisis in various parts of The Pacific Rim.

Meanwhile, a dedicated group of local humanitarians continued their work providing food and comfort for San Francisco’s neediest.

A special Homeless Ministry at St. Dominic’s Parish Hall in San Francisco is called “The Lima Center,” a Catholic outreach providing essential services to the local community.

The Center is a place of refuge and hope for those in need. Here one can also find a weekly store, offering food and gently-used clothing.

Say St. Dominic spokesmen: “The Lima Center is a great example of the power of giving back and the positive impact of community support. We were unable to offer indoor service during the pandemic but we continued to serve food through the door every day. Our bagged lunches are sandwiches, snacks, juice, a hot dish, as well as other donated foods.”

The center also offers showers and a laundry service for the indigent.
