ABOUT BROAD STREET MINISTRY: www.broadstreetministry.org

Broad Street Ministry (BSM) was established in 2005 when a team of visionaries, led by Convening Minister and Founder, Rev. Bill Golderer, opened Broad Street Ministry in the historic Chambers-Wylie Presbyterian Church in order to create a space that would inspire, nourish, and welcome people from all walks of life. With seed funding from several local churches, Broad Street Ministry was created as a broad-minded faith community with a mission to foster creativity, extend inclusive hospitality, and work for a more just world through civic engagement. Over time the mission evolved to include serving Philadelphians living in deep poverty who are experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity. To that end, BSM began serving a Thursday meal in 2008.

Today, the Hospitality Collaborative is the flagship program offering five community meals and a wide array of services (mail service, personal care, mending, clothing closet, therapeutic arts, reentry services, and counseling) to over 7,000 unique guests per year. BSM also provides case management (“Concierge Services”) for its most vulnerable guests to help them to access a broad range of stabilizing services. Strong partnerships with nonprofits, local businesses, and the City of Philadelphia have been created to ensure effective and coordinated provision of basic needs and supports. In addition, BSM continues to have an active and vibrant worship community and volunteer chaplaincy program to meet the spiritual needs of those welcomed to the space, offered on a voluntary, opt-in basis. “Radical Hospitality,” collaboration, and civic engagement permeate through all of BSM’s programs and activities, creating a rich foundation for social impact for its guests.
