Mission Statement

For more than 20 years, Universalist National Memorial Church (UNMC) has assembled a team of community volunteers to join in the preparation of a monthly dinner for the men of Leland Place. The Leland Place Transitional Housing Program, a facility of SOME (So Others Might Eat), describes itself as "a 13 week, live-in environment that is designed to help homeless men (who are addicted to drugs and alcohol and may also have a mental illness) become more self-reliant. The program participants are given the skills necessary to find and keep employment and to set goals for independent living while maintaining their sobriety." It is our mission to maintain a consistent friendship with the men of Leland Place, and to support their wellness and development through acts of inclusion and kindness.


UNMC is a historic congregation committed to the full inclusion of all who desire to participate in the mission of our church community. Volunteers are not required to join our congregation. Our welcome extends to people of all denominations and religious backgrounds. Our congregagation is committed to fully including volunteers of diverse backgrounds and does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientations or gender expression.

As always, we meet in the church kitchen at 2:30 p.m., with the goal of carpooling to Leland on North Capitol Street and serving the meal at about 5 p.m. We aim to return to the church by 6:30 p.m. In addition to their labor, volunteers may, at their option, also contribute up to $20 to the cost of the meal. If you are interested in participating, please send an email to us at office@universalist.org.
