How To Help

VOLUNTEER for a Walk in the Park: we have been providing meals to the homeless and needy for 21 years. Now we are doing this again in the parks.  We are back at the Downtown Library, 101 N. Stone Ave. from 8:30-12:30 (Summer Hours).  We serve a hot meal, have a ministry of worship and the Word–including prayer–as well as provide clothing, personal hygiene items, and non-perishable food-to-go. We invite a variety of speakers to present on topics that will help and inform our guests of the many services available to them.  Parking is FREE on Saturdays, on the street or under the Library (access on Alameda).




Please consider these needs as we feed the homeless: 

  • Non-perishable food items
  • Plastic forks & spoons (sturdy, please)
  • 8-9″ Styrofoam plates
  • 6 oz. Styrofoam cups
  • napkins
  • plastic grocery bags (used OK)
  • Ziplock gal. size plastic bags
  • serving gloves
  • foil
  • toilet paper
  • towel paper
  • ANY hygiene items (shampoo, lotion, razors, bar soap, tooth brushes, tooth paste,  sun screen, deodorant, etc.)
  • gift cards

Your help will allow us to keep serving AND will provide a blessing for YOU!  (Ps. 41:1-2)

We are currently making appointments with local churches and ministries in order to inform them of our Hope Center vision, Phase I, the Medical Respite Center so that they may pray about being part of it.  Please let us know if YOUR church would be interested in a presentation. If you see yourself as part of this vision–as a donor, co-worker, prayer partner– or you just want more information, contact us.
