To accompany and care for families struggling with poverty and men facing homelessness by providing food, shelter, clothing and services to support their journey toward stability, productivity, meaning and hope, building upon the good works, ideals and values of Father Horace McKenna, S.J.

We serve men struggling with homelessness and families in Ward 6 dealing with food insecurity. We provide a structured program supporting our mission of Meetings Needs… Reclaiming Lives. We depend on community support. If you are able to help you can pray for us, volunteer with us, or donate to support our work.
