The homeless, asylum seekers, the elderly, the disabled, children in need, victims of abuse.
We know them by their needs. What if we knew them by name?
Serve the City is a global movement of volunteers showing kindness in practical ways to people in need. We partner with homeless shelters, refugee centers, orphanages, and other associations, offering help and support. Serve the City creates events that mobilize many volunteers to serve in simple ways – sports, music, arts and crafts, meals, friendship and more. We are the connection between the good intentions and talents of people who could volunteer and a meaningful opportunity to get involved.
And that’s where it starts. We cross the line from where we are and serve. But that’s just the beginning. The dream of Serve the City is everyone serving. As soon as possible we invite those we have met while serving to join us, because what we really want is to cross the line together.
Serve the City is for everyone. It’s a revolution, a serving revolution. And it’s going to change the world.
We know them by their needs. What if we knew them by name? Cross the line. Serve the City.
In 2005, Serve the City began in Brussels as a single week of service, initiated by a Christian faith community called The Well (www.thewell.be). Now Serve the City is active or starting in 100 cities around the world (www.servethecity.net).
