Immigrants And Refugees


The Leo House is a nonprofit Catholic guesthouse dedicated to offering affordable and temporary accommodations. People of all faiths are welcome and we host a variety of guests including clergy and religious, persons visiting the sick, students, and travelers from the United States and abroad. Many of our guests come from foreign countries. Originally established and based in the Battery Park area of New York in 1889 by papal certification by Pope Leo XIII, The Leo House moved in 1926 to 23rd Street in the Chelsea section of Manhattan, one of the liveliest and safest neighborhoods in New York City.

The Board of Directors, The Leo House staff, and I invite you to visit with us and enjoy the wonders of New York City at a reasonable cost.
