Rooted in a 1500-year-old tradition, the Benedictine Sisters of Mt. Angel have served the area since 1882. While the Sisters continue their longtime education ministry, their work today includes serving the poor and homeless through St. Joseph shelter. The Shelter houses and feeds up to 200-300 people daily. Serving farm workers, as well as homeless families, the Shelter meets emergency needs while helping people to become self-supporting. The Sisters also operate Shalom Prayer Center, a retreat and renewal center for people of all faith traditions. The Foundation was established in 1980 to provide support for the Sisters and their ministries.
