Mission Statement

The aim of Person to Person Street Ministry is to bring Christ's love into the lives of the unhoused members of our downtown St. Louis community by distributing homemade meals and other supplies to them on a weekly basis. We are not social workers by training. There are many organizations whose mission is to try to help solve the problem of homelessness, but that is not our purpose. Our mission is humble, but also audacious, and one that is often overlooked: to follow the precepts of Benedictine hospitality by welcoming everyone we meet. To listen to them if they want to talk, and pray for them if they ask us to. To value and love each individual as worthy of dignity and care. While our mission is at its core faith-based (our founding members are Episcopalians), it is not evangelical or proselytizing in nature. Just as we serve everyone without discrimination, so do we welcome volunteers of all religious denominations or none at all.

Description

Person to Person Street Ministry distributes food and supplies one-on-one to the unhoused members of our downtown St. Louis community. Besides homemade sack lunches, water and face masks, we also hand out whatever other items we have available (hygiene products, clothing, shoes, etc.).

Over time, we have made many friends who recognize our little caravan and eagerly await us each Sunday morning. For some, this may be the only chance they get to eat a healthy meal that day. And we may be the only "non-street people" who want to interact with them.

As word spreads, we have received generous monetary and in-kind donations. Within the past year we have organized coat and backpack drives, and have worked with a church youth group to assemble hygiene bags from donated items. We need volunteers to expand our social media presence, solicit donations, and help with the hands-on work of shopping, organizing donations, preparing food, etc.

Our goal is to serve more people and broaden the scope of our outreach. We are amazed at how our ministry has blossomed in a short time, and will continue to "listen with the ear of the heart" to follow the path intended for us.

We hope this moves you to discern how your own gifts could best be used to further our mission. We truly get more out of what we do than we put in, and we think you will too!
