What we do:
Mary House Catholic Worker offers free medically supportive housing to homeless, indigent adults with critical or terminal illnesses while performing Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy mandated by Jesus in Matthew 25 and the Beatitudes. Mary House is part of the world-wide Catholic Worker movement started by Peter Maurin and Dorothy Day in 1933. To this date, there are approximately 200 Catholic Worker communities throughout the world.
More than 1,000 men, women and children have lived at Mary House since it was founded in 1991 by Lynn Goodman-Strauss, who remains a permanent member of the community. Want to help out? The Help us page provides you with up to date information on ways you can assist in providing works of mercy to our guests in need.
