In the coming weeks, we will announce plans to establish a volunteer community in El Paso, TX! Placements in this US/Mexico border town will be focused on serving immigrant communities. If you'd like to learn more before plans are "official", email Program Coordinator Mallory Daily to discuss potential placements and living arrangements. Stay tuned!
St. Louis, MO
Home to vibrant justice and activist communities and a spunky set of Loretto Community members, St. Louis is a great city to be a volunteer. Volunteers live in Tobin House, named after Mary Luke Tobin, SL, former president of Loretto as well as the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Volunteers at this location have access to house cars.
Junia House, our Loretto Volunteer house, is located in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington, DC. A residential urban neighborhood, Petworth is home to a mix of long-time resident families and young people. At Junia House, volunteers share a five-bedroom house. All volunteers take public transit to work and get around using the bus lines that pick up blocks from the house or the Georgia Ave/Petworth metro station, located less than a mile from the house.
New York , NY
Our United Nations volunteer is always the only Loretto Volunteer in New York City. For the past two years, our New York volunteer has lived in Menno House, affordable community housing in the heart of Manhattan. The New York volunteer receives a monthly subway pass to commute to work.
