Manna House is a place of hospitality for poor and homeless persons in Memphis, TN. We stand in the Catholic Worker tradition of hospitality, advocacy, and work for peace and justice. We are a non-residential community of volunteers who offer hospitality three mornings a week, commit to a simple life, and engage in activism with other organizations for justice and peace. We gather regularly for reflection and worship together.
Manna House Memphis offers hospitality to homeless and poor guests. Hospitality includes welcoming of guests, and the offering of basic services such as clothing, hygiene items, showers, and serving coffee or other beverages. We seek to interact with our guests and will learn their names and their stories. Manna House is grounded in the spirit of the Catholic Worker Movement and thus we seek to welcome our guests from the streets with a spirit of hospitality that respects their dignity as human beings. We are open every Monday, and Thursday from 8:00-11:00 a.m. On Monday and Thursday mornings we offer showers, socks and hygiene items, and lots of coffee. We believe compassion is contagious and that justice structures compassion so that all may have life to the full. Donations may be mailed or dropped off on the front porch at 410 Garland St., Memphis, TN 38104.
