Our Mission & Approach

A world of belonging that transcends the margins

Our Mission

The Ignatian Spirituality Project invites people recovering from homelessness and addiction to encounter God’s love, hope and healing through spiritual companionship that transforms lives.

Our Approach

  • We offer spiritual retreat programs, inspired by and rooted in Ignatian spirituality, which invite individuals into communities of hope and belonging.
  • We are a network of volunteer teams building relationships with one another and creating welcoming spaces for all.
  • We empower people who are in recovery from homelessness and addiction to become leaders on our teams and in our organization.  
  • We collaborate with other ministries and organizations in the communities where we serve to achieve and further our mission.

“The ISP retreat program is marvelous. I see how the men and women arrive at the retreat house and the change that occurs by the time they leave.”
