About

The Gubbio Project is seeking applicants to join our Board of Directors.

Description

The Gubbio Project is a unique program that provides refuge for the homeless in the sanctuary of two churches. Housed in the beautiful Saint Boniface Catholic Church in the heart of the Tenderloin District and St. John the Evangelist in the Mission District of San Francisco, The Gubbio Project offers sanctuary and sacred sleep during the day, along with blankets, toiletries and clean bathrooms, to our neighbors without homes. It also provides opportunities for engagement and connection with the homeless to those in the neighborhood, the church, and the school communities. According to ABC News coverage, Saint Boniface is the only church that has successfully initiated and continued such a program for six years.

Goals and Activities

The goals of The Gubbio Project are two-fold:

  • To provide a clean, beautiful, quiet, and safe space for people to rest during the day
  • To cultivate a sense of community among the homeless and a sense of understanding and shared responsibility in the broader church, school and neighborhood communities

We are seeking to expand our Board of Directors, which currently includes 7 committed, diverse individuals. We are especially seeking applicants who have experience with fund development, legal matters, financial matters, and/or board development. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
