Welcome to the Lurana Shelter Society

Lurana Shelter Society and Lurana Shelter are named after Lurana White, the Foundress of the Franciscan Sisters of the Atonement. Lurana White was a woman of vision who advocated activities to support women during a time in history when they did not experience equality.

Lurana Shelter has been an important ministry of the Franciscan Sisters of the Atonement since 1993. While some programs may be similar to others offered in the community, they are also very different. Lurana Shelter Society’s programming model is holistic in its approach. We believe in treating the whole person psychologically, socially, physically and spiritually to bring about optimal wellbeing through our program
