"30 Days of Service" in Rice Lake at Benjamin House
November 9th, 2022 | 9:00 am - 12:00 pm | 1107 Heart Island Pkwy | Location: Rice Lake, Wisconsin
Benjamin's House Emergency Shelter is named after Mother Mary Benjamin, the Mother Superior of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis. Long ago she generously welcomed to their convent another order of Sisters who were poor, homeless, and faced with disbanding.
Over the years the convent has been used for many purposes: a women's shelter, a halfway house, the County Resource Center, and an alternative school. Since 2011, it has been used as an emergency shelter. Clients are assisted in resolving their homeless situations. Benjamin's House represents a place of hope and new beginnings.
