We provide our guests with a second chance at life: a helping hand to move them to achieving success in their lives. We do this by providing a host of services such as securing birth certificates and state IDs, paying for shelter nights, and assisting in securing jobs. The HUB also provides guests an address to receive mail, lockers to store clothing, and a compassionate counselor who listens to their problems and seeks a solution.
But perhaps the most important word that can describe what we do is the word, ‘connections.’ The HUB serves as the Memphis community’s point of entry for homeless individuals into the larger service delivery system. Homeless people come to us and volunteers, such as Calvary parishioners Will Hayley, Weezy Calandruccio, and Susanne Darnell and former parishioner, Camille Deadrick, conduct an assessment of the guest’s needs and help him/her develop a plan of action. Then we connect them with the multitude of organizations in the community that will meet their individual needs.
There are so many ways YOU can become involved with our work!
