Mission

THE GUBBIO PROJECT'S MISSION:

To be in community with and to provide a sacred space and sanctuary for unhoused people in need of safe, compassionate respite during the day.

THE GUBBIO PROJECT'S VISION:

A community where everyone has a safe and sacred space to rest and be.

THE GUBBIO PROJECT'S GUIDING PRINCIPLES:

  1.  All people, especially those who are living on the streets or have mental health or  substance abuse issues, are worthy of respect, dignity, and loving kindness. 
  2.  The Church has historically been an open space of sanctuary and shelter for those seeking  shelter. 
  3.  While the Gubbio Project’s specific activities might change over time, our mission to provide  a sacred space and care services for those in need of a safe, compassionate respite that  places dignity and respect in the highest regard will not change. 
  4.  The Gubbio Project is on the front lines of homelessness, and addresses basic needs of all  people: a sense of safety, belonging, and calm. 
  5.  Compassion is a covenant between equals; not a relationship between healer and  wounded. Allowing all to rest in peace brings dignity to us all. 
  6.  The Gubbio Project is unconditioned giving: one doesn’t have to be “good,” one doesn’t  have to be “productive,” and one doesn’t even have to be “nice.” Everyone is welcome. 
  7.  The Gubbio Project works to nurture a sense of understanding and shared responsibility in  the broader church, school, and neighborhood communities. 
  8.  The Gubbio Project’s homeless guests are served best by staff and volunteers who have a  firsthand understanding of their struggles.
