Mission and Values Statement:
Casa Guadalupana House of Hospitality a ministry rooted in the Catholic worker tradition of blessed Dorothy Day. Casa Guadalupana's core mission is to be a welcoming place that affirms the equal God-given dignity of every person.
Our house of Hospitality offers shelter to Latina women and families who are homeless, in crisis or temporarily unable to meet their most basic human needs. In a loving and faith-filled home those are marginalized by language, immigration, or cultural barriers find empowerment and mentored support to act on their own behalf. Our uniquely bi-lingual and culturally appropriate residence welcomes guests to live as family with us, while they nurture and discover new ways to stabilize their individual situation. In addition, Casa provides outreach and advocacy to immigrants on St. Paul's west side who may easily fall through the cracks of traditional social services. We foster systemic change through collaborations with other faithful in the social justice community.
Outreach and informal basic support needs as a ministry of presence in our community rather than being a “service provider” is our model. Casa Guadalupana’s core mission is to be a welcoming place that affirms the equal God-given dignity of every person. We are committed to the values of simplicity, compassionate action, and solidarity with the poor. We respond as we are able to supply food, general household goods and items necessary to meet basic needs of families in our community.
