About Us




The Mission of the House of Yahweh (HOY) is to serve the economically exploited and the impoverished, especially women and children, so they can attain greater fullness of life. To accomplish this end, HOY commits to provide food, clothing, shelter, and other supportive services to these people and to direct and guide them along the path into independence.

Our Founder


Sister Michele Marie Morris co-founded The House of Yahweh with 4 members of St. Catherine Laboure Catholic Church  in Torrance, CA on November 2, 1982. From then until December 2016 she served as our inspiration and the leader of the mission to serve the poor in South Bay Los Angeles.


Sister Michele retired on June 30, 2017 and was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation for her service to the poor on July 23, 2017.


A Message from Angie Pacheco, Executive Director


The House of Yahweh has been serving your poor neighbors in South Bay Los Angeles for 35 years; your support of this mission  makes this possible. Feeding the hungry, providing clothing and household goods to the poor or helping the homeless to improve their lives is the service we offer to our community.


Today we are at a crossroad in our service to the poor. Our financial outlook is bleak unless we can substantially increase cash donations. Please help us to continue the House of Yahweh's good works by making a monthly cash donation; small amounts are fine but we need many new donors all helping to keep the mission going. Thank you.
