Congregation for the Homeless
Since there will never cease to be someone in need on the earth, I therefore command you, Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in your land.” – Deuteronomy 15:11
One of the consequences of experiencing homelessness is a sense of disconnection and isolation from the greater community. The CFH model of building and nurturing respectful relationships with the men served allows gaps to be closed, community to be built, and opportunities to be maximized.
Saint Margaret’s is one of three churches who helped establish Congregations for the Homeless more than 23 years ago. Congregations for the Homeless is now a wholly separate and independent non-profit and Saint Margaret’s joyfully participates and contributes our Undercroft every September along with two other sister churches for their Year-Round Shelter Program which operates from 7:00 pm until 7:00 am for men 18 and older. All of this work would not be possible without the dedication, support, and giving of our many volunteers, donors, and other supporters. Contact us here for further information or to get involved!
