The community may reach out to schedule a phone or video conversation with applicants following the submission of all application materials. If the community feels that an applicant is a good fit after reviewing their application, they are invited for a two-week stay. This trial stay is a holistic introduction to the soup kitchen programs, the living arrangements of the house, and the community lifestyle, and it also provides applicants an opportunity to explore the surrounding city. After a two-week stay, the applicant moves out of the community for a week of discernment. During this time, the applicant and the community each reflect on their experiences together and determine if the applicant is a good fit for the two-year commitment. After the week, the community reaches out to the applicant with their final decision.
Applicants are encouraged to submit their application materials as soon as they are ready. Please note, the community does not extend invitations for two-week stays more than three months in advance of an applicant’s projected move-in date.
