Presbyterian Night Shelter

Fort Worth's Presbyterian Night Shelter, and their partner, True Worth Place, provides shelter and other services for men, women and families for those experiencing homelessness.

In addition to our sack lunch mission, St. Stephen has other ongoing projects and drives to support PNS. 

We also collect monetary donations for our sack lunch mission and water. In addition to supplies for the more than 400 weekly lunches we provide, the PNS needs water for is clients particularly in the summer. In order to make the process easier than collecting cases of water, we periodically purchase bottled water and have it delivered to PNS. You can donate by using the button below and selecting “PNS Meals and Water” or you can donate by check to St. Stephen with “PNS Meals” in the memo line. 

How You Can Help: 

1. Drop off water at the church office.

2. Have water/sack lunch items shipped via Amazon to the church.

3. Make a donation through the Donate button > PNS Meals and Water.  

As of July 1, we need apple sauce and potato chips for summer deliveries. 

Sack Lunch Mission

St. Stephen prepares and delivers approximately 400 sack lunches to Fort Worth’s Presbyterian Night Shelter the third Friday of each month. Since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020 through the end of 2021, we provided 35,000 sack lunches to our local community. Use the “Sign Up to Help!” button below to volunteer.
