The Mission of the Catherine McAuley Center is to directly minister to women and to the economically poor. The Catherine McAuley Center commits itself to meeting the housing needs of women by providing temporary shelter for women and children who are in crisis which leaves them homeless or without substantial resources; by providing programs and supportive services that assist women in obtaining permanent housing which is safe, decent, and affordable; by providing a support system for the women and a bridge to self reliance; and by assessing those who need assistance in accessing medical and community resources.

We reflect the mission and philosophy of the sponsoring Sisters of Mercy of the Mid-Atlantic Community; are faithful to the teachings of the Gospel; and respect the unique privilege of each individual to move toward self-determination.
