The Next Step Homeless Services

The Next Step Homeless Services is a leader in our community, providing supportive housing, a Day Room and a resource center for homeless individuals. Next Steps operates three supportive homes: The Buddy Smith Home focusing on military veterans; the Esther Home for women and women with children; and the Gabriel House for men.

St. Bartholomew’s actively supports the work of Next Step. Members of our congregation serve on the Board of Directors; a team provides the noon dinner once a month; and the parish makes an annual contribution in support of the its work.
