Operation Homes

Five times a year, homeless families of Medina County come to live at St. Martin's. We are one of fourteen county-wide churches that participate in this program. The families or individuals move in Monday night and leave the following Monday morning. We provide a place to sleep, breakfast, and lunch that they can put together themselves and hot dinner that parishioners provide and share with our guests. We also have 2 parishioners that stay each night. Parishioners and guests each have their own rooms. If you would like to help with this program, please let us know!
