Every Friday over 60 friends come in the doors to our afternoon Hub of Kindness and Purpose, and another 250 join us for dinner.  Friends come from many places and spaces, and although it is not always easy, we strive to create an environment that is welcoming and inclusive.  This past Friday one friend was in tears when expressing the hurt she felt when she was not welcomed at a table where there was an open space.  We are happy that she was able to share her sadness and concern with us, and we were able to address it together as a community.  Friday Night Community strives to be a safe and welcoming space regardless of age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, differing abilities, ethnic background or economic circumstances.  Thank you for continuing to help us to love unconditionally, as we believe that diversity only strengthens and enriches our community.
