Many of our central city families have a roof over their heads, but cannot afford to shop for the fixings of a traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas meal. Join the House of Peace to meet this need in our annual Holiday Food Box Program. Learn how your business, organization, parish, or synagogue can help fill boxes for these families.
We encourage volunteers to perform a Ministry of Presence: to sit with our guests, engage them in conversation, meet them on their terms, and share your experiences. That is the greatest gift one person can give to another: to be wholly present, to listen, to be attentive, to show care.
