Open Table uses a team approach with regular meetings to work with homeless individuals and families. The process includes the family and a team of 8-12 congregation members working together to provide guidance and support for the displaced family.
A plan is developed to help the family exit their current condition over a 12-month period. The plan includes steps required to gain employment, housing and furnishings, medical and dental care, education, transportation and other basic needs. Previously established resources and relationship to employers, landlords, doctors, teachers, and others play a critical role in providing donated services to the family.
Pinnacle Presbyterian Church initiated its first Open Table in January 2011, which concluded with a former homeless family returning to self-reliance. In June 2015 Table #7 was established with a team to assist a family from our community.
