Night Ministry Crisis Line Counselors (CLCs) offer compassionate, non-judgmental support to callers struggling with loneliness, depression, anxiety, worry, grief and other concerns. During hours when most social service organizations are closed, our night-time Crisis Counseling Line receives 18-20 calls per night, each of which can last anywhere from 5 to 50 minutes. Many of our callers face mental and physical health concerns, financial worries and social isolation, and they turn to us for counseling, conversation and referral services.

About San Francisco Night Ministry

Mission Statement

The San Francisco Night Ministry seeks to provide compassionate, non-judgmental crisis intervention and counseling, pastoral care and referral services to individuals in need in the middle of the night every night of the year.

Description

Every night of the year, from 10 PM to 4 AM, the Night Ministry Crisis Counseling Line is available to anyone in any kind of need or distress. People call because they are lonely, anxious, depressed, worried, and for many other reasons. Our team of trained, volunteer Crisis Line Counselors provide compassionate and non-judgmental support to all who call.

During the same night-time hours, Night Ministers offer pastoral care and counseling to individuals on the streets of San Francisco and in bars, coffee shops, transportation centers, hotel lobbies, hospitals, and other places where people gather at night.

Each week, Night Ministry sponsors two outdoor, ecumenical worship services called Open Cathedrals. A free meal follows Open Cathedral - Civic Center, which meets every Sunday at 2 PM at Leavenworth and McAllister in San Francisco, and Open Cathedral - Mission, which meets each Thursday evening at 5:30 PM at the 16th and Mission BART Station.
