Host a Street Choir
SINCE 1983, THE LADLE FELLOWSHIP HAS SERVED SAN DIEGO'S HOMELESS COMMUNITY WITH HOT MEALS AND CLOTHING.
However, for many people on the streets, the lack of hope is an even greater risk factor than lack of proper food, shelter, and clothing. By sharing God's gospel of grace, and living God's law of love, the Ladle Fellowship gives help and hope to those on the edge of society in our city.
Haircuts are a recent addition to Ladle's list of services. Several of our volunteers are providing haircuts for our guests (both men and women). We often see a visible change in our guest's demeanor after receiving a haircut. Below are before and after pictures for one of our guests.
Why Do We Do It?
Relationship based evangelism and discipleship are at the heart of all we do. We aim to proclaim the good news of salvation through Christ; to help homeless believers and others in seeking a biblically ordered life; and to become more deeply committed disciples ourselves. We desire to bring God glory as we work to build and expand Christ's kingdom.

Learn about poverty & homelessness. Find out what the needs are and what the problems are. Think about what life is like without a home and many of the basic resources we take for granted. One place to start is by reading some stories about our Ladle guests at Stories. There are also many Bible references relating to the poor and the homeless, for example, Luke 6:20,21, Matthew 25:31–46, Isaiah 58:10,11, Deuteronomy 15:11, 1John 3:17.
