Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Homeless & Housing, Homeless Centers, Human Services

Mission: Hearts for the Homeless® is a mobile soup kitchen that feeds the poor and chronic homeless on the street. Characterized by a profound spiritual motivation. The program offers nourishing food, as well as clothing, pertinent information regarding area services, companionship and hope for the future.

Results: In 2011 we served over 11,000 people. Volunteers put forth nearly 2,000 hours of their time over 201.

Programs: Hearts for the Homeless® has been in operation since December of 1990 primarily as a mobile soup kitchen that operates out of a fully-stocked motor home. Teams of 3 to 5 volunteers from all walks of life work together each week to fulfill the call to feed the poor. Each night a hot meal, sandwiches, dessert and a beverage are given to the clients that come to our mobile soup kitchen. In addition to food, our volunteers hand out clothing and housewares year round. In the winter months they also hand our warm coats, scarves, hats, gloves, shoes and boots
