Located at 506 Montgomery Street, we will continue to provide the amenities of home to the homeless and poor in downtown Montgomery, including Bible studies, showers, laundry, clothing, home furnishings, groceries, financial management, daily dinners, & weekday lunches. We are temporarily serving dinner at 108 Camden Street until development of our ministry building is complete.
For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to the poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.
