Welcome to The Catholic Worker Farm

The Catholic Worker Farm and Mary House provide accommodation, food, English lessons, counselling and other services for 19 destitute (without access to public funds) female asylum seekers (who we call our ‘sisters’) and their children, at no charge. All of the women are street homeless, and are referred to the CW Farm by refugee services/agencies. The CW Farm /Mary House meets the physical needs in relation to shelter, food and clothing, but just as importantly enables the guests to live in a supportive and loving environment.

*** We are looking for two volunteers (male or female) to work with us within our community at The Catholic Worker Farm. If you or someone you know is interested please visit the Live-In Volunteering page on the website.***
