The San Francisco Night Ministry rekindles hope in dark times.
We provide spiritual and emotional care and referral services to agencies and shelters to people on the streets, and in the middle of the night, every night of the year. We do not judge or proselytize. We respond to how people make meaning for themselves.
Night Ministry needs your immediate help!
We are expanding our telephone Care Line (formerly "Crisis Line") to meet the growing spiritual needs of people at home. As people take shelter from the Coronavirus pandemic -- particularly the elderly and vulnerable -- many essential bonds of human connection are fraying. Our phone ministry is needed now more than ever before in our 55 year history.
Yet, just as this need arises, Night Ministry is facing a significant decline in our resources. Our investment reserves were hit hard by the stock market drop. And a looming recession threatens our annual fundraising. Now is the time to partner with us to ensure Night Ministry's longterm viability and answer the special call we hear to expand our Care Line.
Our goal is to raise $200,000 in the next month.
This initial round of seed money will allow us upgrade our communication platform, recruit and train volunteers, advertise the Care Line widely and over social media, and pay for increased ministry staff.
You may donate through our trusted partner, Give Lively. Or you can send a check to "San Francisco Night Ministry" to 1031 Franklin Street, San Francisco, California 94109.
Consider starting your own peer-to-peer fundraising campaign to help us reach our goal of raising seed money of $150,000 in two weeks. It's easy! Just click "I Want To Fundraise For This" to get started.
