DM Catholic Worker House
2001 Rehab Projects

Listed below are house repair projects for the three Des Moines Catholic Worker Houses. We are looking for individuals, church organizations and other service-minded groups to volunteer to complete one or more of the projects. Volunteer opportunities consist of either 1) buying the materials and completing the work or 2) raising the money to buy the materials and hire others to do the work. Please consider helping us repair our three houses so we can better do the works of mercy.
