Friends, a faith-based nonprofit, represents an expression of everyday Christianity. We are a diverse collection of Christians as well as non-Christians. We gather on Saturdays to serve dinner, provide clothes and essentials in the Franklinton neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. We offer our hospitality and friendships to mostly strangers, some live in the nearby area; some live on the streets; others stay in homeless shelters and rehab centers. For many we are family. The goal is first, to provide stability in their lives and then to offer options to escape the chaos. This is Christianity in a pragmatic form.
