Manna House Memphis offers hospitality to homeless and poor guests. Hospitality includes welcoming of guests, and the offering of basic services such as clothing, hygiene items, showers, and serving coffee or other beverages. We seek to interact with our guests and will learn their names and their stories. Manna House is grounded in the spirit of the Catholic Worker Movement and thus we seek to welcome our guests from the streets with a spirit of hospitality that respects their dignity as human beings. We are open every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 8:00-11:30 a.m. On Monday and Thursday mornings we offer showers for men. On Tuesday mornings we offer showers for women. We believe compassion is contagious and that justice structures compassion so that all may have life to the full.

"My faith demands
that I do whatever I can,
wherever I am,
whenever I can,
for as long as I can
with whatever I have
to try to make a difference."
In addition to our Adopt-A-School program with Willow Oaks Elementary School, each month we select a local, grassroots organization to partner with in reaching out to members of our community who have needs we are able to contribute to. We reach out to each organization to find out their specific needs and collect items throughout the month to be delivered to them the first Tuesday of the following month.
Please click on the links below to learn more about these organizations and watch this page for the specific projects and activities we have planned for them.
