We are "First Responders" who do street outreach and identify homeless individuals wherever they may be, primarily on the streets of Philadelphia but also neighboring communities. We offer a fresh made bag lunch from , then we engage them to see what other needs we can fill- a jacket, sleeping bag, thermal underwear, socks, a tent, toiletries, etc.... ALL BRAND NEW.
The impact of taking time to talk with the homeless when they are often ignored, and giving them a BRAND NEW JACKET with the tags still on to replace their dirty and worn coat, often its overwhelming. We share tears and prayer. We encourage and listen. This personal interaction often leads to the homeless person identifying others that need help, this is perhaps the most humbling aspect when people in bad situations show concern for others.
The bigger impact is people witnessing our humble efforts. We want to encourage others especially children not to judge others in unfortunate situations. We partner with local churches and their youth groups prepare toiletry bags often with handwritten cards and notes to encourage.
Your generous donation will help us to help more homeless, we want to expand our efforts and include others as we do God's work here on Earth. This charitable outreach started over 15 years ago as 2 friends buying lunches for the homeless and we are excited to see where it leads next. Thank you!

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
