| Hospitality is the ancient practice of generosity to strangers without expecting
Practicing hospitality is the foundation of our “ministry of presence.” We
use hospitality to build community on the street where people can find sanctuary.
We treat our guests with dignity and respect.
We receive visitors with a friendly greeting. We offer them food and drink,
health care, and an opportunity to be heard. Hospitality smoothes the way between “hi” and “how
can we help?”
Hospitality facilitates a connection. A cup of coffee and a kind word provides
an opening to trust and relationship-building. Hospitality changes the perspective
and experience of giver and receiver.
