Mission Statement

In an environment of welcome, hospitality, safety, and cleanliness we seek to provide an oasis for homeless men, women, and children seeking survival services.


Our Philosophy

Our PhilosophyLoaves & Fishes is a non-profit organization providing service in a spirit of love, hospitality and generosity to all those who come for assistance.

We are governed by a Board of Directors composed of representatives from various programs of Loaves & Fishes and leaders selected from the community who are concerned about the needs of the homeless and indigent poor.

We are motivated to serve in Loaves & Fishes out of compassion for the poor and disadvantaged. Through our actions we hope to communicate our respect and love for all who come to Loaves & Fishes for assistance.

We recognize the dignity and spiritual destiny of each person and hope by our attitude of hospitality and love to nourish not only the physical needs of those who come to Loaves & Fishes, but also their spiritual need for love, acceptance, respect and friendship. We serve each person with the knowledge that “as often as you did for one of my least brothers and sisters, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25:40)

We are called not only to respond to the material and spiritual needs of the individuals who turn to Loaves & Fishes, but also advocate with them and for them. Therefore, we call upon the community to be aware of its responsibility in both the causes and solutions of hunger and homelessness, the absence of basic health care, unemployment, and attitudes which rob our brothers and sisters of dignity, self-respect and self-confidence.

Our roots are in the Judeo-Christian tradition, and we continue to affirm and act out of this faith. At the same time we welcome as allies and co-workers, people whose roots are in other faiths and traditions. We respect and affirm each other in our differences. Furthermore, we welcome and serve as sisters and brothers all who come to Loaves & Fishes.

We value collaborating with diverse groups in the work of Loaves & Fishes and actively seek to involve volunteers from a variety of backgrounds. Within the guiding principles listed above, we respect the individual spirit and expression of each of the groups.
