Park Street Church’s Homeless Outreach Serves Boston’s Homeless

Park Street Church, one of the oldest churches in Boston, is located on the Boston Common, where a large homeless population takes up residence. Susan Lane, a former homeless woman and a member of Park Street Church, started Thursday Night Outreach (TNO), a weekly night of service and outreach to the homeless population residing near the church. TNO provides a warm meal, bagged sandwiches, and hot drinks, all at no cost for the recipients. Volunteers spend about two hours preparing the meal, then serve the food while interacting with the homeless men and women that attend. The night ends with gathering together to sing songs of praise. TNO happens every week, rain or shine, and it continues to make a positive impact on the homeless population in Boston.
