Compassion Party on the Road (CPR) began as a 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.
The Nutbush team goes out to the woods near Methodist North Hospital as well as the Mapco on Jackson ave. near National (plus several other spots where homeless neighbors live).
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.
We would love for you to join in the excitement any Wednesday evening. 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.
