We are a street mission of hope and friendship for beggars, street vendors, storekeepers, and commuters. We are one desire of fulfillment. We are sojourners with one destination, beggars for meaning, co-responsible for a more human co-existence. We live in one city where the rich and the poor need each other as constant reminders that we were made by the same hand, and that only through a human presence is it possible to discover the true answer to the needs of the heart. It's not "us" and "them"; it's just us, "that we may all be one," as it is with the One who created us.

COMMUNITY POINTS, SIDEWALK AND SUBWAY OUTREACH
We strive to meet the needs of beggars and commuters in our ordinary life on the street. It all begins by acknowledging who we are, where we are. Anyone who is attentive and sensitive to others' needs can be part of this mission, and become an occasional or intentionally dedicated One City Mission volunteer.

"The true protagonist of history is the beggar: Christ who begs for man's heart, and man's heart that begs for Christ."
