Mission: To be a community seeking God by living with the poor; Share dignity through home-cooked meals, friendship, and the offering of shelter and other basic services; Resist the dominant culture of violence and addiction through adherence to Christ's law of non-violence, service and serenity; Embrace the Gospel values of simple living and trust in God's providence, and; Encounter God through prayer, liturgy, service, and contemplation.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We probably serve about 500 people every week.
