About Community Night Walks
Community Night Walks involve groups of volunteers accompanying our Night Ministers out on the streets in the evening hours, providing basic health needs and care to unhoused people in the Tenderloin and around the city. The program connects privileged and unhoused community members around our shared humanity. You are invited to walk!
A Community Night Walk begins at the SF Night Ministry office on Franklin & O'Farrell street. The event generally goes from 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM. The evening will begin with introductions and a brief dialogue about Night Ministry and the work that we do. We will then divide ourselves into small groups who will lead night walks to specific areas. At the conclusion of the evening, we will return to the office for a debrief, emotional check-in and parting thoughts.
WALK OUT IN SMALL GROUPS

Night Ministry is adapting to the crisis of homelessness by meeting the needs of our neighbors at night, both physical and spiritual. Physically, people living outside are more likely to have dermatological problems, infections from simple cuts, functional limitation, seizures, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, foot pain, and decayed teeth. Many hospitalizations and deaths are preventable with basic hygiene. Spiritually, there is a crisis of hope on the streets and a crisis of human connection between the privileged and less fortunate members of our community.
