We sponsor a large Catholic healthcare and housing system dedicated to servicing the poor. Sponsorship is an ongoing public relationship that the Wheaton Franciscans have with our incorporated ministries, Wheaton Franciscan Services, Inc., for the purpose of fulfilling the mission of the Church.
Through collaborative relationships with governance and executive leadership, sponsorship ensures that resources, people, services, and finances are used to continually support and deepen the healing shelter ministry of Jesus. Sponsorship is exercised through responsibility and authority to determine and influence Mission, Vision, Values, and management philosophy, as well as governance structures, leadership selection, strategic planning, resource allocation, operating policies, and educational resources.
