Discover the heartwarming stories and unbreakable spirit at St. Margaret’s House, a sanctuary for women in South Bend. From moments of despair to stories of triumph, this video showcases the “magic” that happens when compassion and care come together under one roof.

At St. Margaret’s House, every woman is seen for who she truly is—an artist, a teacher, a mother—and not just her current circumstances. Thanks to the support of our community, we’ve seen incredible journeys of recovery, empowerment, and hope reignited. Thank you for believing in our mission and being part of this journey.

We do this work together, and we continue to make a difference every single day. Your support fuels our efforts and helps keep our doors open.


St. Margaret’s House improves the lives of women and children by providing individual attention to their immediate needs, breaking the bonds of isolation, and helping them to take their next best step. We believe that each woman is talented and gifted and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
