John never imagined that he would become homeless but after a string of expensive medical bills and difficulty finding work, he was evicted from his home. Newly homeless, John didn’t know where to turn.

“It’s challenging to navigate the system when you aren’t familiar with it,” John says. “But Holy Apostles is very inviting. Everyone is so welcoming.”

John has been coming here for two weeks since he became homeless and plans to continue coming until he finds work. “It’s a heaven of soup kitchens. I love the environment. It’s an unbelievable church architecturally, and the grand piano music is spectacular,” John shares.

John is also using our counseling services to get referrals, and for help figuring out his options. But meanwhile, he says, “This is a good place. I’m grateful that I have somewhere pleasant to go and good food to eat. They serve gourmet level food here, and a good amount too. I feel like I’m coming to a restaurant, not a soup kitchen,” John says.
