We have been wrecked by the loneliness and hopelessness of our friends struggling with homelessness and extreme poverty. We’ve watched as they’ve struggled with having no place to go, no one to turn to, no hope for the future. We’ve cried many tears with them. But there has been laughter and stories. So many beautiful stories. We’ve sat around campfires in makeshift camps, on the floor of crumbling houses, beneath the awnings of abandoned buildings and listened to these stories. Friendships were built. Community was formed.
Stories Still Breathing is a non-profit outreach comprised of missional storytellers who seek to use the relational process of storytelling to create gospel-community with our friends struggling with homelessness and extreme poverty. We meet our friends where they are, invest in their lives and stories, then partner with them to help communicate their stories to the world. And then we celebrate. We’re always celebrating. Our hope is that we are able to remind our friends that they are still alive, that God is still writing their story, that they are a Story Still Breathing.
We actively seek out relationships through outreach projects and being present in the community.
We create relational programs and projects that allow us to deepen friendships.
We partner with our friends to help them communicate their stories.
We celebrate the stories of our friends through weekly meals and special events.
