Ideology & Perspectives
The Street People Homeless Ministry was founded by Joe Bourque
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy Proverbs 31:8-9
Since 2016, Joe Bourque has been dedicating his time to helping the street homeless; offering a hand up instead of simply giving them a handout. His vision became reality when he founded Street People Outreach Team, which serves not just those in St Louis city but also extends its reach into neighboring St Charles County – no one is left behind! The team conducts regular outreach initiatives throughout downtown and beyond so that everyone can get help on their journey towards independence.
Our mission is to create a bridge of trust with those experiencing homelessness, so that we can help them find stability and security. Our experienced outreach teams actively build relationships on Wednesday evenings in order to lay the groundwork for acceptance of our assistance; from chronically homeless individuals all the way through recent displacement cases. Helping people achieve safety off their streets drives us each and every week!
Connecting homeless individuals to beneficial services requires meaningful outreach initiatives. With the aim of building trust, our efforts focus on directly communicating with people in need and equipping them for success through assessments, connecting them to appropriate resources, providing adequate follow-up care—and even advocating when necessary.
Join us in making a difference with homeless ministry, an organization dedicated to providing hope and inspiration for those most vulnerable. Together we can touch lives and create meaningful connections that will make a lasting impact on our community. We have partnered with Element Church in Wentzville MO.
