This popular evening of storytelling returns for a second year as we celebrate women from St. Margaret’s House and their stories of connection and community.

Guests, volunteers, staff members, and students will share their own experiences, showcasing the healing power of community and the ways that our lives become woven together.

Sunday, February 18, 2024 | Winter Walk

We will celebrate 25 years of “walking a mile in her shoes!” New in 2024: the walk will begin at the beautiful Community Learning Center at the St. Joseph County Main Library and will end, like always, with a reception at St. Margaret’s House.


Thank you for making the Undie 500 a success!

A big hurrah to everyone in the community who made our second annual Undie 500 event a huge success! 

We received 2379 brand-new pairs of underwear and bras. Thank you for helping us serve our women with dignity and respect.
