From our Executive Director


I can't tell you how exciting it is to be a part of the mission of Luke 14:12.   Each day we open our doors to whoever chooses to join us: the homeless, the hungry and the working poor.  Yes, we serve our guests a quality, nutritious meal, but more importantly, we offer hospitality and respect to everyone who enters our dining room!


It would be impossible for Luke 14:12  to serve our guests without the generous support of our donors, and without the gracious participation of our volunteers.  Luke 14:12's volunteers are of vital importance to our daily operations. Volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and many represent local faith communities, businesses and other organizations.  We are proud that Luke 14:12 exemplifies the ability of various groups to come together to take care of those less fortunate.


If you are not familiar with Luke 14:12, please consider joining us on a Monday, Tuesday or Friday for lunch - contact our office for more information about volunteer opportunities.


Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Luke 14:12.  We strive to host a banquet at which all are welcome.
