In 1957, our building was purchased by Mennonites—members of a Historic Peace Church—to house conscientious objectors to war while they completed their alternative government service.

Today, MMF maintains the resident and guest rooms, and uses the house for office and meeting space. Read more.
Menno House provides long-term housing for Mennonite Voluntary Service (MVS) and Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) volunteers who come to work in New York. We also offer up to two years of housing for other people who want to live in an urban, faith-based community while pursuing service opportunities or educational and vocational goals consistent with the values of Manhattan Mennonite Fellowship, which owns the house.
