Second Emaus project in USA - 1984

Founded 1984, the second Emmaus Community in the US: eventually included homeless shelters, a soup kitchen, clothes & food banks, recycling facility and paramedical response team.
Our Emmaus community adopted Ciudad Guzman, a city of 90,000 60% destroyed in the Mexico earthquake.
We raised several train loads of relief supplies and building materials, provided volunteers and funding for a decade.

Total residents and recipients reached 350 per week prior to starting the project in Mexico, when the project multiplied a hundred fold.
