Every second Sunday, our church provides sandwiches for the homeless parishioners of the Outdoor Church of Cambridge. During the school year, our youth make the sandwiches during worship and then bring them upstairs for a special blessing.
The Shortstop shelter is a transitional shelter for young adults located just feet from Hillside’s front door. On the fourth Wednesday of every month, we gather in the church kitchen to prepare a meal to deliver its 12 residents. We provide the ingredients, but we need your help to transform them into a delicious meal!
The Friday Café
Open every Friday from 1-5pm, September through June, the Friday Café is a neighborhood gathering place where housed and unhoused neighbors can mingle and get acquainted in a low-key, judgment-free setting. Volunteers are always needed!
The Outdoor Church
The Outdoor Church is a church for chronically homeless men and women in Cambridge, MA. Started by one of our interns in 2003, they are a longterm mission partner and have regular volunteer opportunities for those looking to connect and care for their homeless neighbors.
We are always in need of volunteers on Sunday mornings at Hillside. Whether you are a gifted cook or greeter or reader, we can use your talents!
