Our Mission for the streets of san francisco:

A new life.

We meet people where they are– the homeless, addicted, and low-income families of San Francisco, connect them to Jesus, and point them to a path for future success. Through 30 years of street outreaches, services, recovery meetings, and weekly food pantry, we point people towards a new life in Jesus.

Connect. Partner. Impact.

30 Years of Ministry

Our Impact

Throughout 30 years of ministry, we have seen thousands on the streets come to Jesus, surrender their addictions, and pursue new lives of wholeness in Jesus. We are also highly intentional with meeting their basic, practical needs. Through outreaches, services, recovery meetings, and a weekly food pantry, we develop personal relationships with many, enabling us to introduce people to new way of life, and a new hope for their future.



At our street outreaches and services, we provide a full bag lunch for each attendee. We also provide snacks and coffee before and after services for those walking by.




Through the generosity of donations, we provide men's & women's jackets, pants, shoes, and more to many who do not own clean clothes, or clothes that properly fit.




At our weekly food pantry, we consistently feed more than 130 families every week. We have loved developing relationships with these moms, fathers, and children.

Our Programs

Every program is birthed & operated with the mission to meet people where they are, to lead them to their next purposeful step.


Street outreaches

Once a week we hold Bible Studies and prayer meetings with our homeless friends in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco. This is where personal relationships grow deeper, discipleship takes place, and where we host groups & train in street evangelism.

Celebrate Recovery

A Christ-centered 12 step program held on Sunday nights at Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in Pacifica, CA, to help people be set free from their hurts, habits, and hang-ups. We have dinner, a testimony, and small groups break-outs after the teaching.

Saturday services

One of our biggest outreaches each month. We meet inside the SF YWAM building and hold a church service for the homeless. We have worship and a sermon tailored to meet the people where they are. We provide prayer,  lunches, clothes, and haircuts.

Weekly food pantry

Thursday evenings we provide fresh produce and food items to 130+ families in the Portola/Excelsior district of San Francisco. In partnership with the SF Food Bank, our amazing volunteers build relationships and healthy families through our weekly pantry.


march 2018

I came to San Francisco...homeless, and my friend Rory showed me Calvary Street's services. I've served now for 5 years, and I love having this responsibility... something to do in the name of Jesus. When people get a hair cut, or lunch, they feel like a person. It's a great thing to be a part of.
