The Des Moines Catholic
Worker Community -
Who We Are
We rely on the generosity of supporters for the funds and materials needed for the hospitality we offer. We strive to be good stewards of the resources that come our way.
Because we are a community that opens our home to others, we do not seek non-profit charitable status from the IRS. We accept no government money, and we are not financially supported by any foundation or denomination. Instead, individuals, groups and individual churches donate money, food and other supplies.
As members of the Des Moines Catholic Worker Community, we are not paid for our work. We offer our time and energy in the spirit of personal sacrifice, and we invite others to do the same.
“The way we feel about it is this. No
one asked us to do this work…No one asked us to start an agency or an institution
of any kind. On our responsibility, because we are our brother’s and sister’s
keeper, because of a sense of personal responsibility, we begin to try
to see Christ in each one that comes to us.”
