The Community Support Ministry Collaboration Project: Hudson Street Hub & Kerrisdale-Marpole Community Pastoral Resource Centre (St Augustine & St Faith)
The Community Support Ministry Collaboration is an effort to bring together the work of the Community Pastoral Resource Centre at St. Faith and the work of the Hudson Street Hub at St. Augustine which both work in partnership with numerous community groups to provide services and goods to vulnerable people on the west side and in the south of Vancouver. The Pastoral Resource Centre focuses primarily on advocacy and warm referrals to the appropriate resources for housing, food, community health and well-being. The Hudson Street Hub offers low cost clothing and goods, hosts a Food Bank depot, offers three community meals a week, hosts recreation/socialization programs, and provides workshops and clinics related to the daily needs of people in need.
“By bearing witness to each person’s story, holding them in prayer and seeking to support them, we are committed to sharing God’s love and hope with the most vulnerable members of our community; to uphold them as they seek to live with the dignity that is the right of every human being.”
