Broad Street Ministry began as a broad-minded faith community and over time expanded into an organization that holistically addresses the challenges facing Philadelphians living in deep poverty. At the core of BSM is a commitment to extending radical hospitality to all who wish a better life and a more just world. BSM’s Hospitality Collaborative incorporates stabilizing services that not only meet basic human needs, but also helps people move forward. Along with nutritious meals, guests can benefit from a mailing address, change of clothes, therapeutic arts, and personal care items. BSM collaborates with other best-in-class nonprofit organizations to offer medical and behavioral health care, legal assistance, and assistance with housing, public benefits, and personal identification.
In 2016, BSM’s Hospitality Collaborative welcomed over 100,000 guests and provided over 76,000 professionally prepared meals in a manner that turns away no one, emphasizes human dignity, and enables people to live fuller lives.
