Welcome to New Friends!
Welcome La'Shonda and Bekah to our Gubbio family!

La’Shonda (upper photo) is our newest Hospitality Monitor, and aspires to be a case manager one day. She sees her Gubbio experience as playing a formative role in her preparation for that future career.

Bekah (lower photo) is a full-time volunteer at The Gubbio Project through Mennonite Voluntary Service. She is eager to learn all she can and to be a helpful presence at Gubbio this year.

We are happy to have both of them as part of our Gubbio family!

Please stop by The Gubbio Project at St. Boniface or St. John, Monday through Friday, 6 am to 2 pm, to meet them!
Blankets (and Socks) For All!
The Gubbio Project's doors are open to anyone who needs a warm, welcoming place to rest. As we enter the increasingly cold fall and winter months, we are in need of extra supplies to support our homeless guests -- in particular, we are short on:

  • socks (our most requested item)
  • blankets
  • large black trash bags (to keep personal belongings dry)
  • hygiene items (toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, and razors)
  • menstrual pads and tampons

We have updated our Amazon wishlist with all of these items, and more! All donations received will go directly into the hands of local San Francisco neighbors experiencing homelessness.

Thank you for your generosity!
Our City, Our Home
From Dorothy Day

It was human love that helped me to understand divine love. Human love at its best, unselfish, glowing, illuminating our days, gives us a glimpse of the love of God for man. Love is the best thing we can know in this life, but it must be sustained by an effort of the will. It must lie still and quiet, dull and smoldering, for periods. It grows through suffering and patience and compassion. We must suffer for those we love, we must endure their trials and their suffering, we must even take upon ourselves the penalties due their sins. Thus we learn to understand the love of God for His creatures. Thus we understand the Crucifixion.

Please consider supporting The Gubbio Project either through volunteering or donations! We appreciate your generosity and support for this wonderful project.
