Assisi 2 and 3 were opened initially during the shelter phase but have since been operated by another nonprofit organization.
Our goal is to open one additional house each year. All of this has been accomplished by a dedicated group of volunteers. Volunteers search for and acquire the properties we convert into homes. They also renovate and furnish the properties.
Assisi House is not a religious organization. However, all four of our houses are vacated convents or rectories and therefore are ideal for our purposes. In the case of our most recent house, the acquisition and conversion of the building to house previously homeless persons gave the congregational members an opportunity to serve this population and they embraced the opportunity wholeheartedly.
