Peter Maurin Center

"Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head." 

​                                                               Matthew 8:20


Our mission is to serve the unsheltered and marginalized individuals and families in the Greater Akron area by offering prepared meals, warm clothing and friendship at our facilities and in the community.


We extend spiritual and corporal works of mercy in accordance with Matthew 25:31-46 as expressed in Catholic social teaching.


We are a non-profit charitable organization under Section 501 (c) (3) of the IRS Code


The Peter Maurin Center is completely supported by volunteers, with no paid staff.
