Matthew 8:20 Outreach Program

Matthew 8:20 Outreach Program

Our outreach ministry volunteers prepare and deliver various meals and supplies to those in need who cannot travel to our center.

Matthew 8:20 is a street ministry that is an outreach of the Peter Maurin Center.  Matthew 8:20 volunteers meet to prepare sandwiches, soup, treats, and drinks for the homeless and other poor in Akron. The volunteers then share this sustenance, as well as provide tents, sleeping bags, blankets, tarps, socks, gloves, hooded sweatshirts, thermal underwear, some hygiene items, and other items to meet basic needs.

Our Matthew 8:20 Ministry travels out into the field to accommodate those folks that, for one reason or another, cannot make it to The Peter Maurin Center.


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.
