Trinity House Catholic Worker

The Trinity House Catholic Worker is a house of Hospitality for homeless folk based in the tradition of the Catholic Worker movement founded by Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin. We seek to continue their tradition to imitate Jesus Christ by living an intentional lifestyle to co-create with God a community that is built on faith, love, hope, prayer for peace and social justice. We live to express the love of God by helping to alleviate the pains of those in need, primarily those of poor, marginalized and homeless individuals and families in Albuquerque, NM.

What We Do
Trinity House Catholic Worker is a 501c3 community serving the needs of homeless folk in Albuquerque. On a referral basis, we provide two bedrooms for housing guests who are homeless, one for families and one for women and children. Breakfast and supper are provided for them during their stay of up to three months. During the day guests are required to fulfill requirements necessary for permanent housing. These could include jobs, counseling, medical attention, etc. From October 2013 to August 2014, we have offered hospitality to 26 guests: ten women, seven men, and nine children.

Guest referrals are made exclusively by a social person staff-person who networks with social workers at various agencies.

Trinity House Catholic Worker has two ministries:

  • We operate a short term shelter serving homeless women, children and families.
  • We operate a food rescue ministry which provides free food at a "free grocery store" on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

LGBT-friendly: yes
Wheelchair accessible: yes but please call for details
