Service with the Homeless and Poor
Peace United is an active and contributing member of the Association of Faith Communities in Santa Cruz -- a lively and ecumenical coalition serving the very poor and homeless in a number of important ways. AFC sponsors a shelter community that rotates across several local church buildings. And Peace United hosts the community on Sunday evenings, year-round.
In addition, Peace United is a host site, each winter, for the Warming Center project of Santa Cruz. On the coldest and wettest winter nights, a community of volunteers gathers the most vulnerable of our homeless friends in sites prepared for their comfort over night.
