COVID-19 Notice

We are keeping regular hours during this emergency, but services are limited to simple grab-and-go meals outdoors.

We refer to ourselves both as the Catholic Worker Community and as the Catholic Worker House. Since opening our house in 1985, we have sought to provide care, comfort, and support to individuals who are homeless, poor, marginalized and in need of food and other basic services. We do our work following the philosophy of the Catholic Worker Movement which emphasizes faith-centered action, personalism, community building, nonviolence, simple living, and a respect for the environment. Our primary purpose is to offer "hospitality of the heart" (according to Matthew 25) to anyone who is homeless, poor, lost, and/or marginalized for any reason.
As an independent and faith-based community, we do our work with the belief that God will provide for our needs through the community surrounding us - people of different faiths, races, and economic conditions. We do not accept government funding, and we are not under the auspices of any institutional church or diocese. We rely on volunteer labor and the donations of those who believe in what we are doing.

COVID-19 Notice

Services are currently limited to call-in assessment. Monday only, 9:00 am - 10:45 am

Or call the Homeless Connections Hotline at any time.

Coordinated assessment--also known as coordinated entry or coordinated intake--paves the way for more efficient homeless assistance systems by:

  • Helping people move through the system faster (by reducing the amount of time people spend moving from program to program before finding the right match);
  • Reducing new entries into homelessness (by consistently offering prevention and diversion resources upfront, reducing the number of people entering the system unnecessarily); and
  • Improving data collection and quality and providing accurate information on what kind of assistance consumers need.

San Antonio /Bexar County’s coordinated entry system began in June 2016. Currently 7 coordinated assessment hubs are located throughout San Antonio/Bexar County.
