Project WARM is a Christ centered outreach providing overnight weather protection during the coldest times of the year for the South Bend homeless population. The aim of this project is to provide food and shelter as we bring the transforming power of the Gospel to men who live on the streets. This ministry happens through the hospitality and love shown via the food, fellowship and message that they receive, all as God guides and provides. There are many ways to help:
The Project WARM weather amnesty shelter will be open every night from 12/1 – 03/31, 8pm to 7am, at Hope Ministries on Michigan Street in South Bend. There are volunteer opportunities available every evening
How Project WARM started
Project WARM was started with a vision of helping the most fragile homeless population in the South Bend region with a loving environment that kept them off the streets during the coldest part of the winter. Through the strong support of the local United Methodist Cluster Churches (Clay, Grace, NorthWest and First United Methodist) and with a partnership with Hope Ministries Project WARM started in 2011 and has served many “guests” in the South Bend region. Since its inception other Christian churches have come together to walk beside these men.
