Join St. James Episcopal Church’s all-volunteer crew at the Soup Kitchen

Join St. James Episcopal Church's all-volunteer crew on Thursday at the Soup Kitchen to provide a safe space for socializing for their unhoused and low-income neighbors. The primary impact of this event is the provision of dignity and respect for their unhoused neighbors in a safe place run by kind and generous volunteers. Most of those they serve are loyal regulars, some of whom continue to attend even after finding affordable housing. The services they provide—home-cooked meals, clean clothes, social activities, and conversation—help create a sense of self-esteem for people whose lives are otherwise full of stress and vulnerability. Volunteers work together to create a safe space for socializing, including preparing and distributing hot meals, organizing and distributing donated clothing, and assisting with special activities like an art table, board games, music, and a lending library. At the end of the event, volunteers help clean up and return tables and chairs to storage. They have a strong core of experienced volunteers who show up weekly and are ready to welcome and orient new volunteers to all activities. Because those they serve tend to be older and chronically homeless, many struggle with mental health and substance use disorders. Familiarity with trauma-informed care is a plus, with basic tips provided in their volunteer agreement and a quick orientation on the first day. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, though they are willing to work with younger volunteers under certain conditions described in their volunteer agreement, available here: https://forms.gle/a12PZXM7drm1z2Au7
