Volunteers help check mail for distribution to the numerous guests using BSM as their permanent mailing address. You must be at least 18 years old, able to speak and read English fluently, and able to bend over to check mail. Currently, more than 3,200 people use Broad Street Ministry as their mailing address. While this position is not guest-facing, this service is incredibly vital that allows our guests to have a secure place to receive those important pieces of mail such as birth certificates and social security checks, while also being able to keep in touch with loved ones.

About Broad Street Ministry
315 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107, US
We envision the day when everyone crossing our threshold flourishes as they participate fully as valued members of a mutually supportive community.
For more than five years Broad Street Ministry (BSM) has been at the forefront in terms of creating unique, trauma-informed indoor dining experiences. And during that time we have developed several valuable partnerships with social service providers. Now that we have added two evening meals and a Saturday lunch to the Breaking Bread line-up, the next stage of our growth in this work is to bring more providers into BSM’s space in an even more integrated and collaborative way.
All of us involved in this work - from our funders who generously invest in our efforts, to our "best in class" partner organizations, who encourage their most talented staff to work at BSM for one of more days each week, to our own staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to deliver services to our guests in a trauma-informed way - all of us share a common goal. We are all committed to improving the physical and psychological wellbeing of every homeless and hungry person who crosses our threshold.
The BSM Hospitality Collaborative was created with this goal in mind.
From its earliest beginnings BSM has been focused on providing services that were lacking or insufficient for our guests’ needs. This initiative is another iteration of that goal. By partnering with other non-profits, especially ones with strong reputations and expertise in areas such as health care and housing (where BSM does not have expertise), we are positioned to maintain that focus of doing what we do well - radical hospitality.
Since our partners in the collaborative share so many of our core values, and even as the number of guests who come has increased, we are able to be welcoming to all. This creates an atmosphere of dignity and hospitality (without proselytizing or preaching) that builds community among guests, volunteers and staff.
