What is the Tacoma Catholic Worker?

At Guadalupe House, we provide clean and sober  transitional housing for single adults on an interview and invitation basis.  We also offer a place where people in need can come take a shower, use the phone, and pick up mail on weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  We are committed to serving the immediate needs of our neighborhood and city, creating a welcoming place for everyone, and working toward a more just community.  


We are here to walk with our guests toward stabilized lives and to advocate for social justice and peace.  We have a thriving organic garden that helps feed our house and neighborhood, and we are active many coalitions that bring us toward a more just community. Among our staff members, guests and extended family, are artists, cooks, puppet makers, carpenters, community organizers, ministers, and aspiring roller derbyers.   It takes all these gifts and many more for a community to thrive.  Please come and visit some Tuesday (see weekly liturgy).

Our Current Community Needs  Include:  

  1. Coffee! There is nothing appreciated like a hot cup of coffee.  We go through a lot of it.
  2. A Strong Working Lawnmower, and if there is also a person who wants to volunteer to mow now and then, so much the better.
