The mission of The Gray House is “to help its neighbors facing hardships to meet their immediate and transitional needs by providing food, clothing and educational services in a safe, positive environment in the North End of Springfield.”

Our mission is fulfilled by operating the Market, Adult Education Program and Kids’ Club.

In addition to our mission, The Gray House continues to operate in accordance with the belief of our founding Sisters, that The Gray House be “a place where peace is lived and learned, and hope is shared.” This belief has helped us create a welcoming, encouraging and supportive environment, which assures our neighbors they will be treated with respect and dignity when they come to The Gray House.
