The Mission Commission of St. Margaret’s Church has approved the development of our first Open Table program.
The Open Table is an international model that uses the intellectual capital of a faith-based community organized into a group of 6 to 8 parishioners and a Brother or Sister that has experienced homelessness to empower the Brother or Sister to begin living into their human potential. The Table works together to set goals, foster accountability, and implement a plan to create change.
We have six volunteers for our first table, and would welcome additional volunteers. Volunteers agree to meet once a week with a Brother or Sister. The Light House of Annapolis is partnering with The Open Table and area churches to support this program to end homelessness in our community. Our Brother or Sister will be referred by the Light House.
Beth Arruda is the Mission Leader. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is also available at the Open Table website at www.theopentable.org.
