Mission Statement

We are a House of Hospitality based in the tradition of the Catholic Worker movement. We seek to imitate Jesus Christ by living a particular lifestyle with three priorities: First, to co-create with God a community that is built on faith, love, hope, prayer, compassion, gratitude, joy peace and justice; Second, to express the Love of God by helping to alleviate the pains of those in need, primarily those of the homeless young mothers ages 18-25 and their children in the Eugene area; Third, to peacefully challenge and change those social structures which create division, alienation, isolation, domination, exploitation, and involuntary poverty.

Description

St. John Bosco House is a home for young women and their children organized by the Lane County Catholic Worker. Serving mothers ages 18 - 25 who are having a housing crisis, Bosco House provides a stable and safe environment to help residents resume an independent life.

Originally founded to serve homeless youth, the first Lane County Catholic Workers quickly discovered that the largest unmet need locally was a place for young women. While services exist for juvenile mothers, once they turn 18 many young mothers fall between the cracks.
