What We Do

St. Mary’s Dining Room provides the following caring services to the individuals and families experiencing homelessness and poverty in our community.  Our ability to provide this care is made possible through the generosity of our community. It is because of community’s financial support, their gift of time through volunteerism and their donation of in-kind supplies and materials that we are able to provide hope and dignity to the many men, women and children that visit our campus each day.
