At Haywood Street we celebrate communion every week — and not just at the altar table.

Around the kitchen table in Respite and at every Downtown Welcome Table meal, communion happens. Over a cup of coffee in the Hospitality Room and in conversation around the picnic table, communion happens. Relationships are every bit as important as the food we serve, the clothes we distribute, and the medical respite care we provide.

Thank you for helping to make it all possible.
