When the weather becomes very difficult for outdoor living, the Peter Maurin Center opens its door about 6pm and lets in homeless brothers and sisters for an overnight stay.
We supply a mattress, pillows and blankets to sleep. The follow morning, after a light breakfast and a bus pass, we let the guests return to their tent locations. There are very few organizations in Akron that afford these emergency stays.
From the smallest crumb to a pair of socks, and even a friendly face of hope, The Peter Maurin Center invites anyone who loves community to join us in doing good deeds for those in need. Every single person and effort means the world.
