Who We Are
The St. John of the Cross Catholic Worker House assists:
- People in need of food
- People in need of shelter
- People in need of a better tomorrow
It it through our prayers, resources and compassion that the Catholic Worker House seeks to improve the lives of those less fortunate in our community.
We carry out the Corporate Works of Mercy though the generosity of many individuals, churches, corporations, school groups and other organizations. It’s through community support and donations that we were able to serve 292 residents in 2017 alone.
We serve married couples, single women and single mothers for between 30-90 days. While our clients are with us we spend time identifying any potential barriers and setting goals for the future. Our clients stayed an average of 17.25 days in 2017 before moving on to either permanent housing, transitional housing or for some going back to the streets sometimes feels like their only option.
