This church lets 225 homeless people sleep inside every night

In some cities, it is nearly an epidemic. San Francisco is one such city, with a whopping 7,000 people said to be homeless on its streets.

Compared to other homeless populations, that’s a lot! and this puts the so-called “City of Love” in the national top ten for homeless population.

To put the number into perspective, roughly half a million people are currently homeless in the U.S. The fact that there are so many homeless individuals living in such a dense area makes for a very difficult problem to solve.

Thankfully, some good samaritans and people with hearts of gold are doing whatever they can to help remedy the desperate situation.

Desperation can at times lead to desperate measures. Unfortunately, San Francisco’s high homelessness rate means is up to.

With only the wealthy able to afford housing (it’s said that to live comfortably in San Francisco, you need a whopping minimum $123,000 annual income) thousands are being left to roam the streets, unable to adequately house, feed or clothe themselves.

Unsurprisingly, social services are stretched very tight in the city, with many of the needy unable to receive hot meals or even safe places to sleep.

Thankfully, some good samaritans are taking action.

The Gubbio Project has one clear mission: to help provide the homeless with locations where they can sleep and eat.

These locations house an average 225 homeless people a night, don’t ask anyone to sign in, and provide food and additional care and treatment to the vulnerable.

The Gubbio Project works out of two churches: the Saint Boniface Church and Saint John’s Apostical Church.

In both locations, care and kindness is consistently on offer.
