San Bruno Catholic Worker

San Bruno Catholic Worker

At Catholic Worker Hospitality House we operate a free dining room and emergency homeless shelter on the grounds of St. Bruno’s Catholic Church in San Bruno. Five mornings a week we operate a free dining room with 70-80 guests joining us for breakfast. Besides the hot meal guests can use the shower, get food to go, and see about availability in our homeless shelter. Every night we operate a year-round emergency homeless shelter with space for up to 9 guests. Guests usual stay from 2-3 weeks, but length of stay varies according to guest.

Our work at the shelter over the years has shown us the great need among our guests for affordable and supportive permanent housing. In addition to our emergency homeless shelter, we currently own and operate four houses of hospitality. Two houses offer permanent housing for the formerly homeless. Another house provides housing for a family.  In July of 2018, we purchased a home in Oakland that provides transitional housing for people returning to the community after incarceration.
