Publication: Grace Notes

The mission of CAIN is CAIN is a neighborhood ministry that transforms lives and inspires hope by providing nutritious food, crisis assistance, resources, and compassion in a way that respects human dignity and builds a more vibrant community.

At CAIN/Grace Place, we offer our home as a temporary residence for up to one year at no cost to women - with or without children -who are in transition from homelessness. We strive to increase awareness of the causes of poverty and homelessness and to call ourselves and others to God's plan of justice, peace and integrity of creation. We seek to move toward an organic and sustainable life style of voluntary simplicity. We share resources and cultivate loving (nonviolent) interpersonal relationships, health and serenity.

Volunteers needed:
Live-In Community Members wanted: CAIN/Grace Place is a Catholic Worker transitional shelter for women and children. Founded as a Catholic Worker community in 1998, we are now a ministry of CAIN (Churches Active In Northside) which is fully committed to Catholic Worker hospitality and community. Our house is in an old racially and economically diverse neighborhood. We seek two live in volunteers to join a third. These Co-Leaders provide hospitality, stability and advocacy and are supported by a core of committed volunteers who join us in performing the works of mercy, sharing a daily faith life and living simply in solidarity with the poor. We are a safe and welcoming community for all people and are committed to acknowledging and celebrating the presence of God in every person. Live-in CoLeaders receive room/board/stipend/assistance with health insurance/vacation and scheduled time off. Our goal is to re-open and be fully operational by April 1. To learn more, please reply by Feb 15. To learn more, please reply by February 15. Call the House at 513-681-2365 or email:
