Hospitality is a central theme of the Christian tradition. Our approach is to extend that hospitality to a generation of young people who find themselves in times of transition-times when they may feel particularly vulnerable or isolated. In your community there are likely a number of young adults in need of food, affordable housing, fellowship and community-young adults serving agencies like AmeriCorps and Teach For America. Their presence provides us a unique opportunity to live out our call to hospitality.
