Individuals and families build permanent, positive change in their lives through safe and affordable housing, sound mental and physical health, and employment and financial stability.
Our Spirituality Statement
In solidarity with the traditional social teaching of the Catholic Church, St. Patrick Center embraces the attitude of Jesus as servant to the poor. We espouse a spirituality that places our clients at the center of all decisions.
St. Patrick Center will work with our clients in a holistic manner: honoring their dignity and human rights; listening to each individual; providing for emotional, physical and spiritual needs; and creating an environment that encourages all to be the best they can be.
Working as servant-leaders, staff and volunteers will manifest an attitude of openness that is inclusive of all faith, beliefs and cultures; humility based on truth; compassion not influenced by sentimentality or stereotype; and love that both champions and profoundly respects the free will of each person.
