Emmaus House is an Episcopal Community Center which predominantly serves the residents of Peoplestown & Summerhill neighborhoods in Atlanta. At Emmaus House, people from all walks of life work together joyfully to diminish poverty and its broader consequences. By striving for economic security, social justice, dignity and peace, individuals are empowered, and hearts, minds, and wills are transformed. In addition to housing a Poverty Rights Office, Emmaus House offers a variety of programs and activities serving groups of all ages. For information see www.emmaushouse.org
Emmaus House has opportunities to participate as a volunteer in the activities and programs. St. Catherine’s volunteers participate in the Emmaus Walk, Christmas Festival and more.
