How can we serve Homeless people most effectively in the Presbytery of the Western Reserve?

The present structure of PWR includes two Networks listed on the website: Hunger Action Network and Race Action Network.  This is where you can connect with people who have a common interest in these concerns.

The Outreach Committee tasked Rev. Cinda Gorman (HR) with exploring interest in a Network of individuals and congregations who are presently engaged in ministries with homeless persons or want to get started without duplicating current ministries.

  • Do you volunteer or partner with IHN/Family Promise?
  • Are you seeing the effects of homelessness among your members or those who seek help from your church during the week?  
  • Does your church host meals regularly at a shelter or participate in Homeless Stand Down?
  • Do you want take the next step beyond giving funds to encouraging personal involvement?
  • Do you have professional experience to bring to the table?
  • Have you experienced homelessness yourself?
  • Do you serve on the staff or Board of an effective ministry to the homeless and could share your experience?



  • Contact Cinda at This email address is being protected from spambots.
