Lincoln Park Community Services

St. Pauls helped found the Lincoln Park Community Services (LPCS) in 1985 along with three other neighborhood churches. LPCS is a comprehensive social service agency serving adult men and women who are experiencing homelessness, providing interim housing, meals, and a targeted array of services to over 300 people each year. We continue our close relationship with LPCS through regular volunteer opportunities and by hosting their Sunday Community Engagement Program (CEP).

Here's how you can volunteer:

LPCS Community Engagement Program (CEP) Sunday Suppers

  • When: Every Sunday afternoon from 3-6:00 PM
  • Where: St. Pauls kitchen and Oscar Mayer Room
  • Description: This outreach program serves those in need in our community—some who are on the LPCS waiting list and others who are struggling with housing. The program provides a good hot meal, a warm place, a shower, and laundry facilities. St. Pauls volunteers plan a menu, purchase food, and prepare and serve dinner for about 40 people each Sunday afternoon. The meal is prepared in St. Pauls kitchen and served in the Oscar Mayer Room. Volunteers arrive at 3:00 pm and dinner is served around 4:30 pm. Volunteers are encouraged to eat with the guests if time allows. After serving the meal, volunteers assist with clean-up, which is typically finished about 5:15 pm. 

Please contact Jen Kew, or 312-833-1009 if you are interested in volunteering. This volunteer activity is ideal for families and groups of 4-6 people.
