    St. Margaret's House is a day center committed to the gospel value of hospitality as reflected in Matthew 25 and improving the lives of women and children. Some come for a day to meet an immediate need for a hot, nutritious meal, to take a shower, to access their clothes closet or simply to make a phone call. Others come longer to take part in a program—parenting, empowerment, health or Bridges Out of Poverty. And still others have come for years because they find a supportive community which helps them battle the isolation that sometimes comes from struggling as a single parent, coping with mental and physical health issues or surviving a history of sexual or physical abuse. Here they can lend a hand, meet new friends and experience the power of women helping women.
