Waterloo (Iowa) Catholic Worker turns 25!
Congrats:

The Catholic Worker House, because it is not a non-profit and does not receive federal dollars, operates with less paperwork and more flexibility than many social service organizations. Also, the Waterloo operation, and others like it, do not receive or give tax write-offs, and pays property taxes. This practice, in [Dorothy] Day’s perspective, is a way to identify with the poor.

Any man, woman and child who comes looking for a temporary bed or a hot meal is welcomed, no questions asked, Quirk said. Though visitors, called guests by volunteers, must abide by house rules. Waterloo’s Catholic Worker House includes a home for about six men and a home for about five women and some children.
