We are "First Responders" for the homeless. We do street outreach and identify homeless individuals wherever they may be, primarily on the streets of Philadelphia but also neighboring communities. We offer a fresh made bag lunch, then we engage them to see what other needs we can fill- a jacket, sleeping bag, thermal underwear, socks, a tent, toiletries, etc.... ALL BRAND NEW.
$30 puts a BRAND NEW COAT on a homeless person.
$24 gives a BRAND NEW SLEEPING BAG to keep someone warm.
$15 buys thermal underwear and socks for someone living in the cold.
$5 gets a freshly made quality meal in their hands.
The impact of taking time to talk with the homeless when they are often ignored, and giving them a BRAND NEW JACKET with the tags still on to replace their dirty and worn coat, often its overwhelming. We share tears and prayer. We encourage and listen. This personal interaction often leads to the homeless person identifying others that need help, this is perhaps the most humbling aspect when people in bad situations show concern for others.
The bigger impact is people witnessing our humble efforts. We want to encourage others especially children not to judge others in unfortunate situations. We partner with local churches and their youth groups prepare toiletry bags often with handwritten cards and notes to encourage. Your generous donation will help us to help more homeless, we want to expand our efforts and include others as we do God's work here on Earth. This charitable outreach started in 2000 as 2 friends buying lunches for the homeless and we are excited to see where it leads next. Thank you!

The Sheep and the Goats
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
The mission of Least of Our Brothers is to make a difference in the lives of homeless people in Southeastern, Pennsylvania. By providing much needed food, clothing, and shelter our aim is to provide a moment of humanity to the homeless who are often ignored by society. Through a moment of dignity we strive to help those in need gain confidence in others and allow the homeless to alter their outlook on life. Through this human touch we help them gain confidence and change their outlook on life as well as referring them to additional services.
Our homeless street outreach started in 2000 as two friends wanting to make living a little easier for those living in very harsh circumstances. In a conscious effort to limit any overhead expenses we make sure the maximum amount of every donation or grant goes directly to the homeless population in Southeastern PA. We personally locate homeless individuals and families and put desperately needed water, food, clothing, and shelter needs in their hands. We hope with our actions to inspire others to be kind and generous to the homeless they may cross paths with in their daily lives.
