Siena Francis House relies on the generosity of caring members of our community to help us serve the many hundreds of men and women experiencing homelessness who seek our assistance, daily. Below is our Daily Needs List of in-kind items we appreciate receiving as donations. Donations are accepted at the Siena Francis House’s Donation/Loading Dock from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm, Mondays through Saturdays. The dock is closed on Sundays and major holidays. The dock is located in our emergency shelter, located at 1117 North 17th Street in Omaha, although only accessible from 16th Street. The dock entrance is located on the west side of 16th Street, a half block north of 16th & Nicholas Street.
The courteous folks staffing the dock will give you a receipt at the time you make your donation.
