Just Creations, an outreach ministry of St. William Catholic Church, is a not-for-profit fair trade store that opened in April 1990 in order to “provide marketing assistance to low-income craftspeople in the developing world.” Just Creations features handmade products from talented artisans from 35 countries around the world. As we provide sights, sounds, and tastes from around the world, we provide fair wages for artisans so that they can pay for food, education, health care, and housing.

GuardiaCare (formerly known as St. William Center, Inc.) is dedicated to renewing spirits and rebuilding the lives of persons shattered by abuse, neglect, and exploitation. The Center accomplishes this mission through fiduciary services (Representative Payee, Guardian, Curator, Trust), its Adult Day Health Center and Club Dosker (another Adult Day Program).Volunteers may participate in these ministries through service on the Board of Directors, board committees, and assisting with program activities such as visiting elders in nursing homes or sponsoring events at one of the adult day centers.



The St. William Conference of St. Vincent de Paul responds to requests for financial (rent, utility, furniture, food) assistance in our 40210 zip code area. Teams of two visit families who call, offering face-to-face contact that makes real sharing (and not just a handout) more possible. Conference members also serve as advocates, helping families/individuals in need to make connections with social service agencies.
