1. A Home Doesn’t End the Homelessness Struggle

For the past 3 years, Broken Hearts volunteers have given Ken relational support on his journey to ending his homelessness.

Broken Hearts

Broken Hearts is a street level ministry that exists to meet the relational, spiritual and physical needs of the broken-hearted living and working on the streets.

We ultimately dream to see cities transformed and broken lives holistically restored by the love of Jesus Christ through the participation of the local Church.

From approximately 10pm to 1am, we hang out on the street in an effort to build relationships and "have church" with those who live and work there.
