A home, a job, a purpose: Emmaus helps individuals build new lives. At our Community, formerly homeless men and women (our companions) live and work together in a supportive environment. At Emmaus, companions learn new skills, discover hidden talents and develop friendships, they gain a sense of self-worth and independence. Companions can stay in the Community for as long as they need to. There is no pressure for them to move on until they feel ready.
