The Hospitality House Program


Transitional Housing for the Homeless helps families get through a difficult time and emerge able to function in a community.  It keeps families together and able to maintain a sense of dignity.

Modeled after the Houses of Hospitality started by Dorothy Day, the Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless’ Hospitality House Program began in response to a local parish’s call to serve the homeless.  The first house opened in 1986.  Qualified families reside in one of three houses: Helen’s House, Vincent’s House, or Joanie’s House.  In thirty years, well over one hundred families have "graduated" from the program. The three houses provide shelter and much more for seven working homeless families, each residing in a private apartment and receiving support services to help them meet their goal of securing their own permanent housing.  This “helping hand” makes a difference to the families, and makes independent, secure housing an achievable dream. 

Each house is financially supported by local churches or civic organizations, including the Parish Community of St. Helen.  Other donors and volunteers help with household goods and repairs.  Visit www.theelizabethcoalition.org for more information.

Our annual fundraiser, the Service Auction, will be held October 28!! Can you help by making a donation such as sports or theatre tickets, use of a vacation home, dinner/cocktail party/golf packages, a service such as painting a room or a themed basket?  In addition, please consider attending the auction.  It is a fun night with great food, wine and beer.
