McAuley House is a meal site and house of hospitality. We open at 8 a.m., and guests come in from the street for a hot cup of coffee, a simple breakfast, and to greet one another in our hospitality room.
We provide a nutritious breakfast, hot lunch and a take-away evening meal five days weekly, in an atmosphere of love and respect. Breakfast is served from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., and lunch is served from 11:15 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We serve up to 300 people each day.
After a daily prayer, guests are served lunch "restaurant-style," one plate at a time. Our chef prepares lunch with creativity and care, using donated and purchased foods. Volunteers pour coffee or juice and provide a selection of desserts.
McAuley House offers a host of support services such as rental assistance, toiletries, clothing, prescription assistance and referrals. Guests also are invited to participate in a number of enrichment programs, which provide support, healing and engagement.
McAuley House guests live on the streets or in shelters, or have housing and struggle to get by. Many were born into poverty and lack educational and other opportunities.
Some of our guests struggle with addictions, and suffer from mental illness. All yearn for a sense of belonging, and for basic human needs of food, shelter and clothing.
We serve adult men and women, as well as families with children.
