The Night Minister (frequently with some assistants) does nightly rounds of walking the streets making contacts with the homeless directly. Additionally, the services

are provided by phone through a Care Line (415-441–0123), which is used often. In 2022, SF Night Ministry estimates that between night visits on the street and the

conversations on the telephone, there were 34,852 significant spiritual and emotional

vulnerable and often forgotten persons of San Francisco and other communities. Please

join us in supporting this vital ministry that takes places in the night hours in the

Bay Area.
