The new Peter Maurin Community Center was opened and dedicated in December 2014. We now have the ability to minister to those in need in an area separate from our Dining Hall. Some of those ministries include providing bicycles and bicycle repairs for our guests; providing clothing items that are seasonally appropriate to our guests; providing personal hygiene items and some medical screening; facilitating vision and dental services for our visitors; and just offering a place to enable our guests to be part of the community. If you look closely in the summertime, you can view the beautiful Community Garden between our two buildings. It was made possible through the combined efforts of Eagle Scout Joseph Horsch, a member of St. Mary Parish-Hudson; GROW Akron and The Peter Maurin Community!
