Our Mission

As a ministry of people helping people, our mission is to serve the homeless in our neighborhood and in Philadelphia in various capacities.

We offer food and clothing to those in need who stop by the church during the week; we feed college students who are experiencing food insecurity; we collect and provide clothes, dry goods, and books to local shelters; and we provide backpacks to local youth in need.


Donations of good, clean clothes are always needed. Please check our Weekly Bulletin and Community Calendar for current and upcoming projects.
