Human connection is the cornerstone of all we do at The Night Ministry.

Homelessness and poverty can be incredibly isolating and lonely experiences. That is why it is essential that we build accepting, nonjudgemental, and caring relationships with every individual whom we serve.

We believe that building supportive relationships with those whom we serve recognizes their dignity, helps to build confidence, and can become the foundation for journeys of personal change.

We listen closely to each person’s story. We provide practical resources. We are patient and consistent. We hope the relationships we build over time will empower each person to consider options based on his or her own strengths.

The Night Ministry is not affiliated with any specific congregation, denomination, or religion. Our staff and volunteers practice a ministry of presence.
