What is Hospitality?

Hospitality is the ancient practice of generosity to strangers without expecting reward.

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.
