Haley House

We believe in food with purpose & the power of community

What is haley house?



Haley House uses food with purpose and the power of community to break down barriers between people, empower individuals, and strengthen neighborhoods.  We believe in radical solutions: solving problems at their root by challenging attitudes that perpetuate suffering and building alternative models.


Haley House is dedicated to helping those made vulnerable by the harshest effects of inequality move toward wholeness and economic independence.




We seek to honor the intrinsic goodness and dignity of every person and challenge systems of privilege and injustice in our society. We believe in the possibility of transformation through personal relationships and engaged communities. 

How we help

Get Involved


Donations from our community keep our programs running. Haley House is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax-deductible.


Since our doors first opened in 1966, volunteers have truly been the lifeblood of Haley House. We always welcome new friends to come by, share in the warmth of our community, and reflect on the work we have done together. With the diversity and breadth of our program offerings, we believe there is something for everyone here.
