Experienced men and women will lead us through the downtown area under bridges, in parks, behind buildings, and other spots where our neighbors are hanging out or preparing for sleep. We’ve found that it is a great hands-on serving activity for kids as well. Because of long-term relationships & credibility with our homeless neighbors, we have never had any incidents occur during CPR.
To go out with our outreach teams in the downtown area, arrive in the parking lot of the Smith Center at 602 Looney Ave. (off Danny Thomas, North of St. Jude) ready to depart at 6:00 p.m.
Compassion Party on the Road (CPR) began as a risky and spontaneous adventure led by homeless members of Jacob’s Well and their friends who wanted to help our neighbors on the streets. Today, CPR has become full-fledged, organized chaos where people come from all over the city to join in with the compassion parties our faithful team members organize each Wednesday night to feed 80-100 people through three different routes.
Why: We do this as an act of reciprocation. We have been shown mercy, so we offer mercy. And we are blessed to be a blessing.
