One Word from Steve


Steve is a companion at the Downtown Welcome Table. He shows up every Wednesday with a smile and an eagerness to to be present with our friends. When asked why he chose “helpful” to describe Haywood Street, he replied,

“We’re helpful to strangers. That’s what Jesus did–he helped people he didn’t know.”









During this season of giving the one word we keep coming back to is GRATITUDE. Gratitude for the many donors, supporters, companions and friends who make Haywood Street the wonderful community that it is. In that spirit, we asked folks around Haywood Street what ONE WORD they think of when they think of this community? Do you have a ONE WORD you’d like to share? If so, send us a note to
