This rating was published 11/01/2019 and includes data from FY2018, the most recent 990 received at that time.

St. Matthew's House exists to change lives in a spiritual environment that is both compassionate and disciplined as we provide housing for the homeless, food for the hungry, and comfort for the addicted and suffering. What began as a modest soup kitchen over 30 years ago has grown into a comprehensive continuum of care designed to empower struggling individuals for a life of self-sufficiency. Today, St. Matthew's House operates a soup kitchen, food pantry, emergency and transitional housing facilities, substance abuse recovery programs, and employment training initiatives. To generate revenue for our work and jobs for our residents, St. Matthew's House developed an innovative social enterprise model, which includes 5 thrift stores, 2 catering companies, a cafe, a car wash, and a hotel & conference center. These businesses fund more than 60% of our operating budget and cover all administrative costs so that 100% of donations received can be allocated to our life-saving programs.
