Hope House Catholic Worker - ResourcesUnite!


Hope House is a Catholic Worker House of Hospitality, one of hundreds located throughout the world, but you don’t need to be a Catholic or even Christian to live here. Catholic Workers provide food, clothing and shelter because Jesus Christ did and told his followers to do it, too. Catholic workers do not receive wages for their service to the poor. We respect the dignity of each individual who comes for help and try to build community – or brotherhood – among those who live here. Ordinarily, guests are expected to be at our evening meal, to participate in weekly meetings and recreation, and to contribute to the upkeep of the house.
