As a Catholic organization, rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we provide food, clothing and shelter to poor and marginalized children and families, young adults and seniors of all faith traditions to meet their immediate needs while addressing the long term issues of systemic poverty in the Deep South.

Our Motto, instilled by our founder the late Father Frank Casey, S.S.E., resonates today: “Do the best we can, with what little we have, to serve those most in need.”

Our work is guided by the corporal mercies found in Matthew 25: 35 – 36: ‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
