Maureen’s Haven began in the winter of 2002, under the auspices of Peconic Community Council, with St. Mary’s Episcopal Church and Mattituck Presbyterian Church housing homeless men and women one night each week. The goal is to provide safe, warm temporary overnight housing, dinner, breakfast and a bag lunch. Presently transportation is provided each night of the week to and from nearly twenty houses of worship on the North and South Forks of Long Island from November 1 through April 1. St. Mary’s houses our guests on the second and fourth Fridays of each month and is always looking for volunteers to help with the set-up, meals, clean-up, laundry drop-off/pick-up and especially staying overnight. It requires many volunteers (over 1200) to operate this program which has grown considerably over the years. We at St. Mary’s have accommodated between 25 and 30 guests on most nights. If you would like to help as a volunteer or through financial support, please contact: Mary Castro, Paula Godfrey or Barbara Frederic.
