faith1Faith in Action Groups

Each year, Project Hospitality welcomes nearly 30 high school, college, and adult groups from across the United States to our weeklong educational mission program. These Faith in Action groups:

• Serve in the soup kitchen and food pantry
• Assist with cleaning, repair, and painting of agency buildings and clients’ homes
• Prepare meals and help in the clothing pantry at our Outreach Center
• Help in the recreation program at the family shelter
• Lead our summer day camp program
• Assist in many ways at our emergency, transitional, and family shelters
• Meet and talk with people who have experienced homelessness, hunger, and disability
• Learn about homelessness, hunger, HIV/AIDS, and faith perspectives on poverty and justice through workshop sessions
• Experience the great social and cultural mosaic that makes New York City what it is through visits to different neighborhoods and to museums, theaters, and historic sites

Groups typically arrive on a Sunday evening and leave the following Saturday morning. Most groups take one day off during the week to go sightseeing. Meals and housing are provided. A donation of $150 per person is requested in order to help us cover costs. We occasionally have groups who cannot spend an entire week with us, but choose to work with us for 1, 2, or 3 days. To receive more information and a registration packet, please us at (718) 448-1544, ext. 134, or e-mail at paul_kosinski@projecthospitality.org
