A church in San Francisco is opening its doors to the homeless so they can get some sleep. An average of 225 homeless people rest on the pews of the sanctuary of St. Boniface church in the city every day, thanks to The Gubbio Project.
The Gubbio Project was started by community activists in 2004 to help the needs of the increasing homeless population. The church uses the front third of the sanctuary for mass at 12:15 everyday and the back two-thirds is available to the community. Homeless visitors have access to warm blankets, socks, hygiene kits, along with a safe place to rest.
"No questions are asked when our guests walk into the churches; in an effort to remove all barriers to entry, there are no sign-in sheets or intake forms,” the Project’s website states. “No one is ever turned away; all are welcomed, respected and treated with dignity.”
