Haywood Street is a United Methodist mission congregation. Our congregation includes a mix of housed and unhoused individuals….. and everything in between. Our mission is to be a transformative open community of Christ, led by the Holy Spirit, creating opportunities to serve and be served so that each person is empowered to claim their identity as a child of God.
We pursue our mission in the context of programs that help address basic needs of individuals experiencing homelessness or living in poverty. Core programs include:
- Downtown Welcome Table
- Haywood Street Respite
- Haywood Street Gardens
- God’s Outfitters Clothing Closet
Our Companion Ministry provides an organizing framework to support the core programs. Companion is the word we use in place of volunteer. To learn more about the Companion Ministry or getting involved at Haywood Street, click here.
