Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will reward them for what they have done.
Lending a Helping Hand
The people we serve come from all walks of life. We all experience difficult times in our lives, and sometimes we need a helping hand.
Over 40% of the people we serve are experiencing a very temporary situation and just need a little help to get them through a rough time.
Our dedicated volunteers genuinely love helping people and go out of their way to try to meet the needs of everyone we serve.
We build long-term relationships with friends on the street, guiding them to a relationship with Jesus Christ that will help them to realize their worth and inspire them to invest in their lives.
The most rewarding part is the smiles and expressions of gratitude from those we serve.
