They have Provided Shelter
Over the past few years it has been none other than miraculous in what I have seen St. Joseph’s House do for others--families, children and religious. The Missionaries of Peace have reciprocated with St. Joseph’s House on numerous occasions in needs, food, clothing and furniture for the poor in Coatesville and the surrounding areas.
St. Joseph’s House has provided educational services on and off grounds for those where public and private schools have failed. They have provided shelter for the homeless and for mothers and their children where public and private agencies could not, and have been available on numerous occasions in crisis intervention situations when no agency or individual was available.

St. Joseph's House
assists other people in a number of ways. Some of the children who have lived or still live at St. Joseph's House have come here because they were in a situation that was rough or needy.
Because God's Providence has provided them regular donations and two small houses adjacent to the main house, St. Joseph's House, to this day, has regularly been able to provide food, clothing, education, and even shelter to many families, especially those in crisis. One of those houses is now providing for a single mom and her infant daughter. At certain times, funds have been set up through St. Joseph's House for widows.
The motive behind all these services is none other than Christian charity, stemming from a deep commitment and love for God.
Sharing one of our dreams with you...
Our dream is to establish a privately-funded Catholic residential treatment facility to care for those in need of acute behavioral health care. This will obviously require much funding, but if God, through generous benefactors and donation, would provide us the means, we intend to respond to this greatly needed facility.
