Casa Juan Diego – Reconstructing the Social Order Through the Works of Mercy in an Age of Migration

Posted on:
Program Timing: Ongoing / Location: Houston, TX USA
Program: Louise Zwick

Casa Juan Diego needs full time volunteers to work and live in our houses, working closely with Spanish-speaking immigrants and refugees (and sometimes French or other languages!). The work includes providing housing/hospitality, meals, social services, food distribution, tutoring, translating, medical services, kitchen organization, etc. to recent immigrants and refugees. Basic Spanish is required.

In addition to a private room and meals with our guests, Catholic Workers receive a small monthly stipend, health & dental insurance, assistance traveling to/from Casa Juan Diego, mobile phone service, attending a relevant retreat and local transportation.
