Hospitality Monitor and Outreach Assistanthttps://www.mennonitemission.net/Serve/placements/mennonite voluntary service/United States/533098/Hospitality Monitor and Outreach AssistantHospitality Monitor and Outreach AssistantThe Gubbio Project<p> <b>The Gubbio Project </b>is a 501(c)3 which provides day shelter for the homeless population of San Francisco's Tenderloin District and Mission District. The Gubbio Project continues in the Catholic tradition of attending to the needs of the poorest and creating opportunities for dignity and community by offering a safe place where the homeless can rest in the pews of the St. Boniface Church from 6 am to 3 pm and on mats in St. John the Evangelist sanctuary from 6 am to 10 am. Services provided include: a beautiful and calm place to sleep; clean, safe restrooms; hygiene kits; blankets; socks; foot care; referrals to outside services; a listening ear; and a community breakfast for 30-50 of our guests every Friday. </p><p> At our two locations the Project takes place in the sanctuary of the buildings. People that are experiencing homelessness and poverty can sleep and rest there. This sends a powerful message to the homeless - they are in essence part of the community, not to be excluded from a place where all are welcomed. It also sends a message to the people that make up the church communities - that the community includes the poor, those with substance abuse or mental health issues, and those who are wet, cold and dirty. </p><p> <b>Position description</b><br> The Hospitality Monitor/Outreach Assistant works in the day shelter and the office, as well as out in the community.
