Most people are surprised at the size and scope of the homeless population in Rochester. It can be eye-opening to interact directly with people that, for a wide variety of reasons, find themselves sleeping in a tent under an overpass. If you've never engaged with the chronically homeless, I would highly recommend giving Streets for Christ a try.
And there are tons of ways to serve! You can travel with the team into the city to a variety of stops where some of the neediest of our area gather. If that's not for you, they always need people willing to prepare a hot dish or make a few "hygiene kits" for the team to deliver.
Here are a few stories from people at Northridge who have served recently with Streets for Christ.
