Casa Maria is an intentional community, dedicated to following the tradition of the Catholic Worker movement started by Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin in 1933 in New York. We desire to create a more compassionate world using nonviolence, gentle personalism, the works of mercy, voluntary poverty, and experiments in sustainable living with the earth and humanity. Our ministry focuses on opening our home to homeless women and children. Additionally, we provide donated food, clothing, used furniture for our guests and others in need free of charge. We participate in protests and other social justice campaigns that contribute to the well-being of society. We also dedicate ourselves to experiments in urban gardening, raising chickens, composting, and other life-sustaining practices. Our community members do not receive compensation for working at our houses and many have outside jobs to provide for their own personal needs and the needs of the houses. Anyone interested in joining our community is encouraged to contact us. We accept volunteers of any race, religion, nationality, or sexual orientation.
