How and when did the organization get started?
As the United States became a destination for European immigrants during World War I, Bishop James Hartley recognized the extensive needs of this growing Catholic population of Italian, Hungarian, and Yugoslavian laborers and together with Catholic Women’s War Relief, established Barthman Avenue Catholic Community Center in 1919. Shortly thereafter, the center’s name was changed to St. Stephen’s Community House.
