Mission Statement


Since opening our house in 1985, we have sought to provide care, comfort, and support to the homeless of San Antonio.Our ministries offer a temporary home to homeless families and a weekday soupline and clothing closet to individuals in need.

Description


We do our work following the philosophy of the Catholic Worker Movement which emphasizes faith-centered action, personalism, community building, nonviolence, simple living, and a respect for the environment. As an independent and faith-based community, we do our work with the belief that God will provide for our needs through the community surrounding us - people of different faiths, races, and economic conditions. We do not accept government funding, and we are not under the auspices of any institutional church or diocese. We rely on volunteer labor and the donations of those who believe in what we are doing.
