From 6:30-8:00 pm every night, we welcome guests without knowing in advance how many people will join us. We have never turned anyone away and there has always been enough food for everyone who needs it.
Our volunteers help to make each of our guests feel welcome, comfortable and cared about. We greet everyone who shows up and we take the time to learn their names. If no one has spoken kindly to any of our guests that day, we see that as our job. We remind them that no matter what their current circumstances are, they are valuable people.
Many nights, volunteers distribute clothing, sleeping bags, blankets, lanterns, hygiene kits and other items that are critical to surviving when living outside.
During our Community Dinner, we provide referrals to other social services, answer questions about how to navigate accessing care and share information about our other programs.
