Details: The mission of St. Matthews House is to change lives in a spiritual environment that is both compassionate and disciplined, as well as provide housing to the homeless and food for the needy.

For more than 30 years St. Matthews House has offered food, shelter and safety to our areas most vulnerable residents. It is not a permanent place to live. It is through a commitment to accountability and responsibility that the residents of St. Matthews House are able to return to living independently as productive members of society. With this approach to individual care, we witness the restoration of lives on a daily basis.

We operate two shelters, a food pantry, feeding ministry, Justin's Place Recovery Programs for Men and Women, 5 thrift stores, 2 Cafe M25 proudly serving Starbucks® coffee shops, a regional retreat and conference center, Port LaBelle Inn, and a full service car wash.

We sincerely hope that you schedule a tour or jump right in serving as a volunteer in one, or several of our opportunities.
