The Catholic Worker Farm provides temporary accommodation, food, English lessons, counseling, and other services for destitute (without access to public funds) female asylum seekers (whom 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, Social Services, The Constabulary, and other bodies. 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 endeavor to live in a community and have up to 6 volunteers living between the 2 houses.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer and want to know more about what life is like as a live-in volunteer have a look at our live-in volunteer page.
