Operation Nightwatch provides food, shelter, housing, and hope every night.

Every night, we feed hungry people. Every night, we are a refuge for our friends experiencing homelessness. Every night, we care for seniors. And in these perilous times, we keep on making friends with people surviving outside.

Our mission is to reduce the impact of poverty and homelessness, in keeping with Jesus' teaching to love our neighbors. Please join us.


Here's how we help:

Food -- Every night at 8 pm, Nightwatch volunteers prepare and serve a hot, indoor meal for about 150 people.

Shelter -- Nightwatch provides emergency shelter for 65 men every night and 10 women 2+ nights per week.

Case management -- Our Case Manager helps our shelter guests find and connect with resources like jobs and housing.

Senior Housing -- Permanent affordable housing is provided for 24 formerly-homeless seniors in a dorm-style setting, with shared kitchens and bathrooms. Our Housing Coordinator helps to keep our seniors safe and housed by providing meals, friendship, and support.

Street Ministry -- Nightwatch street ministers and committed volunteers provide food and friendship to people experiencing homeless outside. Street teams provide a wide range of services, including ID replacement, bus tickets home, information and referrals. Socks, blankets, food and water are distributed as well.

Volunteers -- Nightwatch cannot function without volunteers. Volunteers help with nightly feeding, street outreach, mentoring, office support, baking, and numerous other ways. Check our website.

We're small and scrappy. Operation Nightwatch is funded by individuals and groups, not big government contracts.

Be Kind. Be Nightwatch.
