Nurturing the Body and Restoring Dignity

Dining Room

Dining Room

At St. Mary’s we welcome all who are hungry, three times a day, every day of the year. But our Dining Room is much more than a location for hot meals; it is a safe place that provides respite and recharges spirits. 

In the kitchen, community groups, along with guests who volunteer, learn teamwork and develop a deeper understanding of humility and empathy. Most importantly, the Dining Room is an entryway to the programs and services that can lead to stability 
and wellness.

Shower & Clothing Center

Shower & Clothing Center

A hot shower and clean set of clothes can restore energy and dignity to those who are living unsheltered. Our Shower and Clothing Center is open six days a week, from 7:30 a.m. to noon (closed Saturdays). Guests can access hot showers, personal toiletries, , and when available, receive diapers and baby formula.

We provide a clothing exchange for those who use the Center. Guests are outfitted in an entirely new set of clothing, leaving theirs to be laundered and cycled through the Center for other guests.

Donations of clothing, wash cloths or new toiletry items are accepted through our Donation Center.
