14 Mar Volunteer
living in community with homeless women and children
The Catholic Worker Farm and Mary House provide accommodation, food, English lessons, counselling and other services for 21 destitute (without access to public funds) female asylum seekers (who we call our ‘sisters’) and their children, at no charge. All of the women are street homeless, and are referred to the CW Farm by refugee services/agencies. The CW Farm /Mary House meets the physical needs in relation to shelter, food and clothing, but just as importantly enables the guests to live in a supportive and loving environment. We live on a beautiful Farm 20 km outside from London together in community.
In general volunteers come in the end of august and stay for a year to experience the work and the life in community.
