Trinity volunteers are active at two soup kitchens in New Haven, Columbus House and the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen (DESK). Each provides sustenance, comfort and fellowship to those in need who otherwise have little means of fending for themselves. Trinity volunteers choose and work assigned shifts once a month or more frequently—a few hours in early evening each time.
Since 1982, Columbus House, along with its core of loyal supporters, friends and volunteers has remained committed to fulfilling its mission: “To serve people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, by providing shelter and by fostering their personal growth and independence.”
Last year over 100,000 meals were served to over 4,000 people. Each year, Columbus House is able to help many chronically homeless adults break the cycle and overcome their addictions, obtain mental health treatment and find housing. Our success is attributable to a wonderful staff of over 85 people, all of whom are compassionate and who are credentialed and certified as necessary.
Every third Tuesday of the month, Trinity sends volunteers to work in the Soup Kitchen. If you want to help, contact Warner Marshall.
