St. Leo Homelessness Workgroup is partnering with New Connections to offer volunteer training for people working to reduce – and mitigate the effects of – homelessness and poverty in Pierce County. 

Upcoming Events

Reflection in Action

On fourth Wednesdays, from 6-7 pm, volunteer participants and ongoing volunteers are invited to join us for guided reflection.

These free Zoom sessions provide a space for dialog with others about the challenges and joys of our volunteer experiences.

Winter sessions: January 27, February 25, and March 25

Invitation to Action!

Support the Revenue for Housing Petition!

Join St. Leo Social Justice Commission in urging the Pierce County Council to utilize a new Washington State law allowing the County Council to authorize a local option sales tax of one penny per ten dollars of sales.

This could generate as much as $20 million per year, an immediate way to begin to meet the housing and services needs of those most vulnerable among us. Please sign the petition and share with your networks!

Join others to voice your support through public comment at Pierce County Council meetings. To join the ongoing grass roots group advocating for this council action, contact Carolyn Read at
