Current Church-Wide Social Justice Project:
Housing For All
First Universalist has often witnessed the homeless issue, often on its doorstep in the alcoves. Homelessness has been chosen by the congregation as Church Project at its Annual Meeting in June 2023. We have named the project Housing for All.
Housing for All will provide education about the issue. Serve, by providing meals, supplies, volunteer opportunities, fundraising, and coordinating with organizations already deep into serving the population of the unhoused. Advocate for legislation that supports the unhoused with services and affordable housing.
Here is how you can learn about the issues in Rochester:

Housing For All: Sock it to Me!
Winter is coming, that’s for sure, but people experiencing homelessness aren’t sure of much of anything. Where can I sleep tonight? How can I stay warm and safe? Housing For All, our all-congregation, two-year social justice project, is gearing up its Service arm by collecting socks to distribute to organizations that provide shelter and/or assistance to these folks. You can begin your participation in Housing For All by bringing new, white socks to a collection box in the Clara Barton Lounge during the month of November. Let’s fill it up to overflowing! Thanks!
