Mission Statement

The San Francisco Night Ministry helps our neighbors in great need, when their needs will not be otherwise met in the nighttime hours, and we assist them as we are able in maintaining community at all times. We increase access to the human right of spiritual care -- at night, on the streets, and on the phones. We meet people where they are.

Description

Every night of the year, from 10 PM to 4 AM, the Night Ministry Crisis/Counseling "Care 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 Care Line Counselors provide compassionate and non-judgmental support to all who call.

During the same night-time hours, Night Ministers offer spiritual 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 a variety of community programs, such as Open Cathedrals (two outdoor, ecumenical Christian worship services), Buddhist Meditation Group, and LGBTQA Sacred Space. Emerging programs include Open Shabbat and Yogic Movements.

With respect to our Open Cathedrals, we welcome volunteers donating a meal. A free meal follows both Open Cathedral - Civic Center, which meets every Sunday at 2 PM at Leavenworth and McAllister in San Francisco, and also Open Cathedral - Mission, which meets each Thursday evening at 5:30 PM at the 16th and Mission BART Station.

We also welcome day time volunteers in all areas -- social media, web development, finances, outreach, event support, and more. We can connect your gifts to our needs as you join our welcoming community.

All volunteer opportunities can be done from home.
