Our street outreach teams work in five neighborhoods in the Pittsburgh area: Homewood, North Side, South Side, McKeesport, and Butler.
Volunteer teams make weekly visits to the same neighborhoods, spending time prayer-walking the streets and visiting with women we know and with new acquaintances. These teams endeavor to create authentic, trusting relationships in order to serve the women we support through: prayer, counsel, locating and securing essential resources, and providing other miscellaneous assistance as we are able.
Teams provide hot meals, donations, and other services at our weekly, women-only care centers. Volunteers help to serve meals, facilitate a welcoming environment for the women who come in off the streets, pass out donated clothing or hygiene products, and converse or pray with women as seems fit.
Our street outreach team is committed to a faithful ministry of presence in order to build trust and authentic relationships with the women we serve. In order to do this, our team members must commit to participating with their teams in prayer walking or serving at one of our care centers at least twice a month, for a minimum of 6 months. If you are unable to commit in this capacity, this team may not be the best fit for you.
