Francis House Catholic Worker

Francis House Catholic Worker

Francis House Catholic Worker was incorporated in April of 2019 and embraces a two-pronged mission to serve both the unhoused in our neighborhood and border refugees at our southern door.

From our rented facility of 5 rooms, we distribute meals to our hungry neighbors in the International District of Albuquerque, NM six days a week from 8 am to 3 pm (closed Wednesdays). At tables we set up in sun or shade depending on the season, those experiencing homelessness can enjoy a breakfast of homemade bean burritos and coffee/juice and water. For lunch, we ladle out hot homemade soups (“holy posole” on Sundays), fruit, and a variety of sandwiches and cookies, all made by our generous volunteers. Our guests enjoy access to hygiene kits and warm blankets, a bathroom, and our outdoor water tank. We welcome local outreach groups to use our space for education and recovery meetings.

For our second ministry we send three teams to the southern border in El Paso, Texas. On three Wednesdays a month a team carries essential donated supplies for displaced asylum seekers who arrive at Annunciation House shelters for respite, communication with US sponsors, and transportation to their new homes.
