Coordinated Homeless Outreach Center (CHOC) - 

1001 Sterigere St., Building 9, Norristown, PA.  

Sunday afternoons at 4:30pm on chosen Sundays roughly once per month. Volunteers plan, organize and prepare a special feast with very nice dishes. They provide it to the residents, joining-in themselves in a family-type special meal celebration together where we meet and eat together as friends and equals.

Volunteers offer to pray with residents who sometimes request special prayer.  Prayer cards are distributed at tables with pens.  Residents are encouraged to write down their prayer requests.  Filled-in cards are collected and used by the sponsoring home groups to pray through together.  Some of the feasts are arranged to include many families with children helping to prepare and serve the food. (Families with children always are welcome.)

For more information, please contact Nathalie Wilson.

Home Groups
